USA: Frontier Airlines Staff Stabbed To Death At Philadelphia International Airport
An argument started shortly before 11:30am (1:30am AEST) in a break room for Worldwide Flight Services, an aeroplane cleaning contractor for Frontier Airlines, in Terminal E Philadelphia International Airport.
Philadelphia Police Lt. John Walker said a man turned out a light in the break room, upsetting another man sitting there.
Lt. Walker said a third man then got involved and after some shoves, he pulled out a knife and sliced one of the men across the abdomen.
The 28 year old stabbing victim died on his way to hospital.
It was a pretty sharp object to get through his stomach and obviously hit some vital organs, Lt. Walker said.
The 35 year old killer and the other man tried to run away after the stabbing but airport police were able to catch them.
They are now both being questioned.
No passengers were involved in the altercation.
Frontier Airlines has so far declined to comment on the case.
