Tourist Killed At Caribbean Airport After Blast From Jet EngineKnocks Her To Ground

Air travel - TravelBanter - www.travelbanter.com
A 57-year-old tourist has died after she stood too close to an

airport?s runway in the Caribbean and the engine of a large jet

blew her into the ground.

The New Zealand national was trying to hold on to a fence

bordering the Princess Juliana International Airport in St.

Martin on Wednesday when she was thrown backward, causing her to

hit her head on the concrete ground, police said in a release.

The woman, who has not been identified, was taken to a hospital

where she died from her injuries, police said.

The airport is famous for its planes? startlingly close

proximity to pedestrians, who have been seen lying on the beach

beneath low-flying planes.

Despite authorities cautioning about the potential danger, a

number of videos posted on YouTube show thrill-seekers standing

close to the runway so that they can experience the powerful

blast of the planes? engines.

One video uploaded in 2012 shows a woman being thrown headfirst

into a concrete barrier after losing her grasp of a chain-link

fence.
