A former Cathay Pacific worker who fell from a cargo pallet at Kai Tak airport and was injured is suing the airline for negligence and unsafe working conditions. A writ filed in the Supreme Court by Chen Wai-min, 45, whose fall resulted in lingering injuries, claims he was not given 'any adequate warning of the danger' of working in the loading area. On October 10, 1993, Mr Chen was working in the flight cabin of a Polar cargo aircraft. The cargo was blocking the entrance of the plane, the writ claimed. 'By reasons of the tight time schedule for loading the cargo and without other staff being available to assist him, Mr Chen had to adjust the cargo by climbing on top,' the writ said. Mr Chen claimed that as he was climbing down he tumbled and fell, injuring his ankle. He has since been unable to work as a loading officer and is suing for damages and costs.
