A spokesperson for the airline reported that
that a ram is always provide at the front door
and that a ramp is not provided for the rear
door and when the door is opened it is done so
to air out the aircraft and when the rear door
is opened a there a caution tape is strung
across the door to warn its employees.
It is believed that Dev had backed out of the
doorway not realizing he was so close to the
door. Some feel that these kinds of accidents
happen because of worker fatigue from long work
hours and that the airlines should do a better
job in employee safety. “Caution tape is not the
answer. There should be something like nylon
straps running across the door and latched” said
IndiGo Airlines released a statement that said
"While we are investigating the cause of the
death, we continue to work with local
authorities and the airport officials to
investigate the accident. This is a very
difficult day for us and we are trying to come
to grips with the tragedy."
