According to the same source, the airport Ground Controller received a call at 12:30 (local time) alerting them to the incident that occurred on Taxiway J. The taxiway in question is now being used for storage, due to the low demand caused by COVID-19.

It is still not certain when the incident occurred (today or yesterday).
