June 13, Wimauma, Fla. / Piper PA-28R-180 Arrow


At about 17:50 EDT, a deplaning passenger in a Piper Arrow struck the propeller and was killed at Wimauma Airport. The pilot and two other passengers were not injured. After landing in the rain on a flight from the Bahamas, the pilot taxied the airplane to the terminal area so the passengers could deplane. The engine was still running when one passenger exited the airplane and went aft on the wing. A second passenger exited the airplane and fell into the propeller.
