Default Sad news at YYZ

A fellow ramp agent from a another ground handling company (swissport) succumb to his injuries at the hospital early this morning....from what i know he was pinned between a beltloader and the plane...he was airlifted to the nearest hospital but later died of his injuries....

It just shows us that working at the ramp is very dangerous,,,but what erks me most are some passengers dont appreciate the work we do all they think is getting on that plane sit and relax or make fun taking videos of ramp agents handling bags (lots of them on youtube),,,we work/slave on rain,snow,heat just to get passengers going. IMO its the most underpaid unappreciated job there is.... so when we push back your plane a simple wave or thumbs up is greatly appreciated...

sorry for the rant.....R.I.P
