Two contract employees on the Boeing Everett flight line were injured while working on an airplane Thursday.
One employee was airlifted to a hospital after the incident, Boeing spokesman Doug Alder said Thursday evening. The second was taken to a hospital in an ambulance.
Boeing did not provide details about the incident, as “the primary focus is on the injured individuals and their families,” Alder said.
“We are deeply concerned any time anyone is injured at a Boeing facility,” Alder said.
In February 2012, a 30-year-old Boeing worker fell under the wheels of a 787 being towed on the Everett flight line and had undergo amputation of both legs.
