The following is reposted from https://www.gofundme.com/MCOAccident:
On October 6th, two of TWU Local 525's newest members were involved in a terrible accident at Orlando International in Florida. The specifics of the accident are still under investigation but in the meantime, Kevin Charles and Alexix Salgado are suffering from life-altering burns suffered while unloading an aircraft.
During the operation, a can-loader malfunctioned and engulfed both employees in flames. Both Kevin and Alexis were burnt severely on their face, hands and legs suffering 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-degree burns, as well as a broken leg, suffered while jumping to safety.
Lost time for these two workers will be paid at 60% of their normal wages. Anything collected will help them and their families during this difficult time.
Please donate what you can. Anything is appreciated.
President, TWU Local 525
