Woman, 26, dead after her hair got stuck in an airport conveyer belt

Jermani Thompson, 26, was injured Tuesday around 10 p.m on the apron, an area where aircraft are parked, loaded, unloaded, refueled, boarded, and maintained, according to the Director of Communications for Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport.

A spokesperson for GAT Airline Ground Support stated that Thompson was working to unload a plane that had landed and then her hair got tangled up in the conveyer belt. “We are heartbroken and are supporting her family and her friends as best as we are able.

Please send your well wishes to everyone at our New Orleans station during this very difficult time,” the CEO of GAT Airline Ground Support says.

Thompson was transported to a hospital where she died.
