Quote:
A New Zealand woman has been tossed to her death by the jet blast from a plane at a Caribbean beach.

The 57-year-old tourist was knocked over in Sint Maarten and seriously injured, dying a short time later.

Several people were apparently holding on to the airport fence by the Princess Juliana International Airport.

This clip right here shows precisely what they're talking about.
You can see a young woman get blown off the fence and slammed right into the concrete curb as the pilot jams on the engines.

Tourists never get trampled or gored in Pamplona, kidnapped in Afghanistan, murdered in Brazil, jailed in North Korea, or contract malaria in Papua New Guinea, either. Play stupid, make YouTube.
