In what has to be the "Eeewwww" event of the year,
the body of a Dominican Republic airport worker was found lodged in
a compartment above a main landing gear assembly in a Skyservice
Airbus A320 at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Authorities report he had been there for "nearly a week."
Maintenance personnel discovered the frozen corpse of Mariano
Herrera-Ba, on Saturday, January 11th. He was dressed only in jeans
and a sweater. The deceased man has been ID'ed as an aircraft
maintenance employee from the Punta Cana airport in the Dominican
Republic. The flight originated there, where Herrera-Ba was
reported missing last Monday.
There are questions as to whether this was an attempt to enter
Canada illegally, or simply a mistake in which Herrera-Ba became
trapped in the area without a way out, before the elements killed
him enroute. However; no foul play is suspected. A Skyservice
spokesman, Sheryn Posen, said "We're very sad for this incident,
that's for sure... We feel for this person that was on the aircraft
as well as the maintenance crew that did discover him."
