Probes under way into cause of industrial accident at Boeing
The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries after becoming trapped underneath the landing gear of a 787.
Paine Field and Snohomish County officials on Monday referred all questions to Boeing.
The accident also is being investigated by the state department of Labor & Industries.
An L&I investigation is common practice after someone is seriously injured in a workplace, spokeswoman Elaine Fischer said. The focus of the investigation is to determine what safety rules were in place and to ensure compliance.
A Boeing spokesman on Monday declined to discuss the case and would not say whether the man was expected to recover from his injuries.
