Woman Killed at Gainesville Regional Airport
Â Â Â Â AroundÂ 8:45 a.m., emergency crews got a call from Gainesville Regional Airport... saying a woman had been seriously injured in this hangar. Â
Â Â Â Â "The door came of the hinge and fell inward toward the inside of the hangar which fell on one of the employees," Michelle Danisovzky, Airport Spokesperson, said.
Â Â Â Â Â Investigators say Cindy Kilgore was opening the doors so that a plane could be removed from the hangar.Â But the steel door fell back on her and she was trapped underneath.... until other employees came to help.
Â Â Â Â "The door was really heavy....they did get it off before we got there so it was a short period of time and they did start First Aid," Carol Davis, spokesperson for both Alachua County Fire Rescue and Gainesville Fire Rescue, said.
Â Â Â Â Â Employees were able to get the door off of Kilgore and give her CPR before Alachua County fire rescue took her to Shands UF.
Â Â Â Â A co-worker who was with her at the time of the accident was not hurt.
Â Â Â Â "It's a terrible tragedy and our thoughts go out to her family," Danisovzky said.
Â Â Â Â Kilgore had only worked for University Air Center for two and a half months.Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â University Air Center just moved into this hangar on November 1st.Â It used to house DayJet planes... but when DayJet left, University Air began to rent it. Â
