Officials say that a baggage handler in New Orleans died Tuesday night when her hair got caught in a belt loader.

On August 30, a strange accident happened while 26-year-old Jermani Thompson was working at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. GAT Airline Ground Support was her employer.

At about 10 p.m., Thompson was unloading bags from a Frontier Airlines plane on the tarmac when her hair got caught in a belt loader.

She was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors said she was dead. Wednesday, a Frontier Airlines flight was cancelled because of the terrible accident. 

The aviation groups affected by her tragic death sent her a lot of condolences. "The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport sends its deepest condolences

to her family and friends, as well as to our partners at GAT and Frontier Airlines," Kevin Dolliole, the airport's Director of Aviation, told Fox News Digital.

"Jermani was part of our Airport family, and we will continue to help each other in any way we can during this hard time," Dolliole said.

A Frontier Airlines spokesperson said after the accident, "We offer our deepest condolences for the loss of a member of our ground handling

business partner." "During this hard time, our thoughts are with her family and friends." 

After a single-engine plane crashed in Michigan, officials said there "appears to be no survivors."
