Airport fuel truck driver averted 'horrible catastrophe'


A fuel truck driver at Orlando Sanford Airport is being called a hero for extinguishing a fire in a tanker loaded with ten-thousand gallons of aviation fuel just feet away from two jets packed with hundreds of British tourists. Airport officials say Chris Pugliese 'averted a horrible catastrophe.'

Pugliese had just pulled his truck under the wing of a Boeing 767, operated by Flyglobespan on its Glasgow Airport - Orlando flights, when the truck's engine stalled. He walked toward the back of the truck where the engine is located, and saw flames.

The tanker driver 'relied on his training to keep from panicking and put out the fire.' Two nearby planes were loaded with passengers and ready to depart for the United Kingdom. Crews estimated the two planes held 500 to 600 passengers. The planes were moved to different gates before taking off.
