    The tow truck brought a Boeing 737-800 from Thai Nok Air to the gate, where passengers were waiting to board. When the connecting rod became disengaged, the towing vehicle braked, but the Boeing continued to move for a few more meters.

    A tow truck driver tragically died on Friday morning at Don Muang airport near Bangkok after being hit by a Thai Nok Air Boeing 737.

    The tow truck became stuck under the plane, and the driver died, while his colleague was injured.

    A security camera recorded the accident.
