GRAPHIC: St.Maarten Beachgoer Dies from Jet Blast

posted by Zac Blobner - 

VIA TMZ (VIDEO HERE):  A New Zealand tourist in St. Maarten died during a thrill-seeking escapade as she tried to withstand the blast of a jet engine.

The scene was horrifying ... people in Sint Maarten tell TMZ, the  woman was hanging on to a fence at the edge of the runway, while an  airliner revved its engines before rolling down the runway for takeoff.

We're told she couldn't hold on to the fence and was catapulted backward into a concrete barrier on the edge of the beach.

People on scene tried in vain to resuscitate her but it appears she died on impact.

A similar incident occurred in 2012 when a woman was blown into the same barrier, but she survived.

There are signs warning people not to stand in the pathway of the  jet, but it has become one of the most popular things to do in Sint  Maarten.
