July 2nd around 2030 I pulled into the gate in JFK to lots of fire trucks, ambulances, lights, sirens etc at a gate next to us. When we asked some people what was up we were told a Comair mechanic was filling up a tire when it exploded and cut his arm off through the bone and was hanging buy a little skin. Also told he was only 19 and 2 weeks out of Mech. school. Does any know this guys and any details about his situation. As we know word of mouth is often exagerated. Hope he has a speedy recovery.
