Unfortunately, Emergency personnel found the 34-year-old man with multiple injuries on his body and declared him dead on the spot.

The Airport Authority confirmed that the deceased was an employee of China Aircraft Services responsible for aircraft towing.

As per police, the man was riding in the passenger seat of a tow truck when he fell out of the vehicle and was hit by the plane being pulled behind it.
