Austin, TX – 3 Employees Injured In Accident At Austin Airport
Austin, TX (April 11, 2019) – Around 3:07 a.m., April 10, Austin-Travis County EMS responded to a reported workplace injury at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
According to EMS, three male workers, in their 30s to 40s, were attempting to clean a grease trap at the facility when they fell into the 8-10-foot hole. Two employees were able to get out on their own, but the third worker went into cardiac arrest while trying.
Two workers were transported with serious injuries to South Austin Medical Center. The third employee was transported to the hospital with critical and life-threatening injuries.
We hope these three individuals are able to make full recoveries from the injuries sustained in this horrific incident. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
