FedEx Worker Trapped in Belly of Cargo Jet

<i> Associated Press</i>

A Federal Express Corp. ground crew worker got locked accidentally in the unheated belly of a cargo jet and wound up taking a freezing 90-minute flight from Indianapolis to Richmond, Va.

“A young man, a new employee, was inside the plane securing a cargo net when someone outside lowered the door,” Kathleen Bergen, a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman, said.

The worker, who was not identified, was sent to a hospital for evaluation but was not hurt. The incident took place earlier this month.
