Fatal maintenance accident at Heathrow

Sadly there is currently an incident running on Stand 102 following the death of a what is believed to be a tug maintenance engineer. Delays may occur. Condolences to those affected.

I've heard there are 2 fatalities today at LHR. Agreed, my thoughts with all involved.

Aparently he was fixing something under the tug and the jack fell.
Poor guy, thoughts with the family.
