Something doesn't add up.

The first report said that he was ingested when the engine started. Even if he was standing right next to the engine as it started, surely it wasn't immediately producing enough power to ingest him as it spooled up to idle.

The next report said that he was standing by the nosegear when it happened. Had that been true, we'd be killing people every day.

No doubt something horrible happened, but it doesn't seem that we have the full story yet.
