Atlanta airport worker killed; trapped under lift
ATLANTA — A spokesman at Atlanta's airport says a worker was killed after becoming trapped for hours under a hydraulic lift in a cargo area.
John Kennedy said late Tuesday the man's body has been removed from under the lift. Fulton County medical examiner's office investigator Laura Salm identified him as 29-year-old Eric Lee of Cartersville.
Atlanta fire Capt. Jolyon Bundrige says rescuers worked for more than two hours to try and free him. A helicopter was on stand-by to take him to a hospital.
But Kennedy confirmed later that he didn't survive.
