After getting stuck in a conveyor belt with her hair, a luggage worker at a New Orleans airport perished.
Jermani Thompson, 26 years old, was unloading bags from a Frontier Airlines plane at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport when the event happened.
Her hair got tangled up in the belt loader’s machinery, which is a truck with a conveyor belt for loading and unloading luggage from airplanes, Stechitegist Media reports.
NBC News reports that Ms. Thompson, a worker for GAT Airline Ground Support, was transferred to the hospital but died there.
Her mother, Angela Dorsey, claimed that her daughter went to Tougaloo College in Jackson, Mississippi, and earned a degree in basketball there.
She said: “She was my baby child,” according to the New Orleans News website NOLA. Everyone admired her.
“I just don’t know what to say. I’m completely blank.
GAT Airline Ground Support CEO Mike Hough stated: “We are heartbroken and are assisting her family and her friends as best as we can.”
“Jermani was a part of our airport family, and we will continue to support one another in any way we can at this tough time,” said Kevin Dolliole, the airport’s director of aviation.
