Is 11:30pm a bad time to go to IAH?

HOUSTON, TEXAS – If you’re headed to Bush Intercontinental Airport, then beware of the “creepy hour” curse.

Okay, not really, but this story is sad and weird.

First, at 11:30 pm Tuesday night August 5, an airport worker slipped and fell 45 feet to his death from an elevated rail track near Terminal C.

Airport officials say he was walking along the rail line when he likely lost his footing.

Then, as if that wasn’t terrible enough, another person died at the exact same time of 11:30 pm. This time the death came inside a plane on the tarmac.

No foul play is suspected in either case,  but you know, the twin timing makes it a little eerie.
