The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released its preliminary report into an incident involving Envoy Air flight ENY3408 at Montgomery Regional Airport, Alabama on December 31, 2022.
The incident resulted in the death of a ground worker who was pulled into the engine of Embraer E175, N264NN (c/n 17000765), while it was parked at the gate with one engine running.
According to the report, "the flight crew reported that after an uneventful flight, they elected to leave both engines running for the required two-minute engine cool down period." The aircraft’s auxiliary power unit (APU) was inoperative during the incident flight. As the narrowbody approached the gate, "three ramp agents were present, but clear of the safety area."
