Start Skydiving will be “a lot less bright” after an employee died Monday night, one day after she was critically injured when she accidentally walked into an operating propeller on an airplane.
Sarah Rhoads, 24, of Miamisburg and office manager for three years at Start Skydiving, passed away from the injuries Monday night at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.
She was surrounded by family and the friends she had made at the business, said John Hart, owner of the skydiving company, based at Middletown Regional Airport.

I'm sure there are a lot of news sites where there will be plenty of sympathy expressed for this tragic accident, but ATS being a conspiracy site and all, I wonder that this is the best place to get such. The fact is that Start Skydiving will be a "lot MORE bright" after this accident because it's not very bright to walk into a propeller in the first place. This young lady, tragic though it may be, just earned herself the Darwin Award for taking herself out if the gene pool. Walk into a turning propeller and you die. It happens every time.
Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm such a bad guy for pointing this out, but does every thing that happens in the world have to show up here? Is there a conspiracy of propellers here or what?

I'm surprised she wasn't killed instantly after reading the title
There safely regulations are clearly poor if she was able to walk In to a propeller, how does that even happen? Invite everyone onto the Tarmac for a chat to take there minds off of the deadly spinning propeller blade on boogie day?

Wow 3 years, you would think she would know this....that said
It has happened so much in the Canadien military they have policies against foot traffic around aircraft running except the marsheller who is responsible for the area visible around the plane, like a big airport.
Anything less is shoddy training..blame goes to the poor person standing in front, then the lame owner for not providing the right/sufficient training.
We all have moments of in attention, that's why we got each other.
