Aeroflot flight SU2112, Boeing 737-800, hit a person during takeoff from runway 24L at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, Russia. The 25-year Armenian man was killed. The aircraft continued the flight as the crew had not seen any irregular indications after feeling they hit something.
The aircraft was subsequently grounded at Athens after damage to the fuselage was discovered.

The Armenian man was being deported from Spain and transited at Moscow. While passengers were boarding the shuttle-bus on the apron, the man ran away.
