A very weird incident was reported on Wednesday when an Emirates flight EK729 was preparing to load passengers for Dubai at the Entebbe airport in Uganda, all of a sudden a female crew member fell out from the plane and sustained serious injuries all over face and knees.
Soon after the incident, Uganda civil aviation authority launched an investigation into the unfortunate incident. Nobody could guess what happened at that time and why she jumped off from the plane or was she pushed out from the plane?
It is still not clear what exactly happened at that time but the reports state that the crew member opened an emergency exit and jumped from the plane. However, there are also some other unverified reports that state the crew member was pushed from the plane.
While one of the worker at the airport named Issac Seremba said the crew member seems to have jumped from the plane intentionally as an apparent suicide attempt.
After the incident, the Emirates Airline released a statement confirming the incident. They said the member of the Emirates Crew, unfortunately, fell off from an open door of the plane while preparing the aircraft for boarding on a flight from Entebbe to Dubai on March 14.
It further said that the injured crew member was shifted to the nearest hospital (10 miles away) and was provided with all possible support and care.
She was found unconscious but alive and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance but later her death was confirmed in a statement from the hospital saying that she died after reaching the hospital. The Emirates airline assured their full co-operation to the authorities to investigate the incident.
However, people angrily reacted after reading this news and hated to travel by the crew who are either suicidal (who tried to jump from the plane intentionally), violent (who were pushed from the plane during some argument or fight) clumsy (who are too careless during their job that they fell accidentally).
They reacted the cabin crew is responsible to take care of its passenger during the flight and in this case, the crew is showing irresponsibility. How can a crew staff take care of the passenger if they are too much negligent during their duty?
Some people blamed the airline has such weak procedure that their staff fell out of the plane. How will that staff provide security and safety to the passengers?
However, there are also possibilities that some foes are trying to defame the Emirates airlines because it is said to be one of the largest and well-known airlines in the Middle-East.
