A worker at Sky Harbor International Airport required medical attention after being run over while on the job.

Airport officials said the employee was run over by a tug at a gate on the B concourse of Terminal 4.

A tug is a piece of ground equipment used to haul a variety of other pieces that are not self-propelled, such as baggage carts and generators, though officials did not immediately say if the tug was pulling anything at the time.

The worker remained conscious and was taken to a Valley hospital in stable condition and is expected to recover, authorities said.
