Video captures ground staff falling off A320 when stairs move away from aircraft

An airport ground staff worker fell from the L1 passenger door of a TransNusa A321 when a stepladder was moved away from the plane. 

The unfortunate incident, which appears to have happened sometime within May 13-15, 2024 was captured on video and has been shared on various social media platforms, including X (formerly Twitter).

In the video clip, the worker appears to have concluded aircraft checks and steps out of the aircraft, where a stepladder had been placed. However, he is not facing the steps when he exits, seemingly presuming that the stepladder is still in position. 

Coincidentally, other ground workers pulled the stepladder away from the plane the moment the man steps, and the gap sends him plummeting down the ground to the tarmac. 

According to various social media posts, the incident occurred in Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (CGK), and fortunately, the worker did not sustain life-threatening injuries.

A Fly Guy’s Cabin Crew Lounge, a Facebook group for aviation professionals with over a million followers, has called out for more “situational awareness” at work to prevent such accidents from happening.
