Woman Killed By Jet-Engine Blast At Caribbean Tourist Attraction

by Kelly Harold

On Wednesday a 57-year-old female tourist on the Caribbean island Sint Maarten was killed after a blast from a jet knocked her into a retaining wall.

Police report that the New Zealander had been standing at a fence that separates Maho Beach and a runway at Princess Juliana International Airport, engaging in a dangerous tourist pastime that has become increasingly popular on the island.

After the large plane took off, the woman was blown away by the jet, leaving her seriously injured. Despite immediate response from police and paramedics, the woman died shortly afterward at Sint Maarten Medical Center.
