A worker at the San Antonio International Airport this past Friday died after officials say he was "ingested" into the engine of a Delta aircraft. There will not be an investigation though by federal officials because the death was ruled a suicide.

The death occurred Friday night when a Delta flight arrived in San Antonio from Los Angelas and was taxiing to the gate. According to KAMC, a 27-year-old worker put himself in a position to be sucked into the engine of the aircraft.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner identified the worker as a 27-year-old man and ruled his cause of death as blunt and sharp force injuries, according to local reports. They also determined his manner of death as suicide.

Following the determination, a National Transportation Safety Board spokesperson said the agency would not be investigating the incident, noting “there were no operational safety issues with either the airplane or the airport.”

The incident happened after a Delta flight from Los Angeles arrived at San Antonio International Airport late Friday night. The plane was taxiing to its gate with one engine on, the NTSB told Nexstar Sunday.

As the plane was taxiing, “a worker was ingested into that engine,” NTSB explained.

This isn't the first time a worker has been sucked into a plane's engine. According to KAMC, last year a ramp agent died in Alabama after being sucked into a plane's engine.
