Compensation Awarded for Loss of Limbs

An aircraft engineer has been awarded around £600,000 in compensation after he was severely injured by an exploding tyre, reports the BBC.

The 39-year-old, who was employed by Lufthansa, was servicing a tyre on a plane at Manchester Airport when a faulty nitrogen rig caused the tyre to over inflate and explode. The force of the blast was so severe that the worker lost one of his legs and one of his arms.

The compensation was paid out by Lufthansa and the ground handling company that had provided the faulty rig.

A spokesperson for Lufthansa said that additional safety measures were now in place to help prevent a similar incident occurring in the future.
