MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Delta Air Lines mechanic has died in an accident at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Airport spokesman Pat Hogan says airport police received a call just after 5:30 a.m. Tuesday of a mechanic who had been injured in the gear doors of an aircraft parked at gate G14. He says medical responders determined the mechanic had died.

Hogan says details of exactly what happened aren't clear, but it appears to have been some kind of accident while the mechanic was working on the plane. He says there are no indications of foul play, and that the Hennepin County medical examiner's office is investigating.

The mechanic's name has not been released.

Officials with Atlanta-based Delta did not immediately return a call seeking details.
