Family demands answers after female airline employee hurt on job



MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - The family of a woman hurt at Pittsburgh International Airport Tuesday is upset and demanding answers after their loved one was seriously hurt on the job.

Very few details about Monestry Colquitt have been released, but her grandmother told Channel 11’s Brandon Hudson that she lost a significant amount of blood.

“I’m just thankful my granddaughter is alive,” said Noel Wilson. “I ain’t been to bed. I’m so upset.”

An airport spokeswoman said Colquitt was seriously injured on the Gate D Terminal ramp while driving a tug car, which carries airplanes.

Colquitt was taken to Allegheny General Hospital, where she had undergone surgery Tuesday night. Her grandmother said she’ll also have to have a second surgery.

“I want a full investigation because nobody called me from her job yet. I don’t know what went down,” Wilson said.

Wilson said her granddaughter is a dedicated employee who cares about everyone.

“She cares about everyone. She goes in there on her days off. She’s always helping people,” said Wilson.

So far, officials have not released what airline Colquitt works for.
