A New Zealand woman has been killed by a jet engine blast while watching a plane take off on the Caribbean island of St Maarten, officials said.

The St Maarten police force said in a statement, the 57-year-old woman, who has not been named, was “seriously injured” earlier this week, as she tried to cling to a fence to feel the blast, along with several other people, as a plane took off.

Plane spotting is a popular activity at the Princess Juliana international airport, accoring the Guardian report.

Tourists regularly pose for videos and selfies as jumbo jets fly close overhead, with the strength of the jet blast from the planes sometimes propelling watchers on nearby Maho beach into the sea, and causing clothing and bikinis to be ripped from their bodies.

Police said they patrol the site on a daily basis to warn people to stay away from the “dangerous” area.

Footage posted on Facebook showed paramedics unsuccessfully trying to revive her, and police said the woman was taken to the hospital, where she was declared dead.

Sint Maarten tourism director Rolando Brison told the New Zealand Herald he had offered his condolences to the family of the woman.

“I met with the family of the deceased this evening and while they recognised that what they did was wrong, through the clearly visible danger signs, they regret that risk they took turned out in the worst possible way,” Mr Brison said.

BELFAST – A woman, fed up with searching for the perfect man, has married the ghost of a 300-year-old pirate and says he’s her ‘soulmate’.

Amanda, 45, who searched for her soulmate in the afterlife after failing to connect with any real-life men, has married a Haitian pirate named Jack who died in the 1700s.

Her love affair with Jack, who was a thief on the high seas in the 1700s until he was caught and executed, began one night in 2014 when she was lying in bed and felt his energy appear beside her.

Astonishingly, after years of romance, Amanda managed to hire a registrar and journey into international waters where she could legally marry the smitten spirit.

Amanda Teague, mother of five from her ex-husband, even used a spiritual medium at the wedding to allow him to say “I do” during the ceremony on a boat off the Irish coast where her friends and family attended.

Like any ordinary couple, Amanda says, the couple live a fairly normal life; including having rows, going on dates, and even having an active sexual life.
