Its me in the rain coat, with wands in my hands. I salute to rampers that work in Northern United States (and Colorado). Winter on the ramp can be very challenging.

I'm also a little confused....if someone was driving the belt loader how can you not see a person. They should've been driving at a walking speed. Truly sad for this event never had to happen if people were more careful.

>>>Obviously if she got pinned, she was not the driver.
FYI, your reply (#53) was a reply to #7, which was a "me-too" to reply #3 (in which the poster was commenting upon the linked article in the thread's original post.
Post #48 said: Unfortunately, a tragic accident happened yesterday at DCA where a US Airways ramp service employee was killed. She was driving a belt loader up to an Embraer aircraft when, for reasons not yet known, the belt loader went under the aircraft, pinning her between the belt loader and aircraft, killing her instantly. That was posted some days after the accident, and undoubtedly has more accurate information the initital public news report from days earlier.
We don't have alot of Wachovia Banks here in the Dallas area, but fortunately, one of the few that is here is right up the street...
A sad event...
