We don’t know what’s more thoughtless: allowing people to sit on a part of a public beach that's only a few feet away from the airport runway or the fact that some individuals get as close as the can to a larger airplane getting ready for takeoff.
A video that surfaced on YouTube shows several beach-goers standing behind the fence of the Princess Juliana International Airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin as a Jet Blue plane is turning around with its engines on.
While most onlookers leave the spot once they feel the tremendous force of the jet engines, a woman decides to hold onto the wired fence, and as you may have guessed, she was blown off her feet landing head first on a concrete block on the beachfront. In the video she appears to be hurt but she managed to get up and sit down.
Watch the video right after the jump.
