Right Arm Partly Severed, Woman Taken To Specialists
A woman deplaning from a Cessna at
Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) in Maryland November 6 is lucky
to be alive, after walking into the moving propeller of the
FAA spokesman Jim Peters said the Cessna 172 landed at FDK about
7 pm and proceeded to the ramp in front of the main terminal
building, the Frederick News-Post reported.
Exiting from the left side of the plane and heading for the
restaurant in the terminal building, the 19-year old woman walked
around the front of the plane where the propeller struck and partly
severed her right arm, according to Frederick Police Department
Police spokesman Lieutenant Richard Hetherington said a Maryland
State Police flight medic was on the scene when Frederick Police
officers arrived about 7:10 pm. The woman was medevaced to Union
Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, where hand and arm specialists
waited to treat her injury.
Hetherington did not release the name of the woman or the pilot,
reportedly a flight instructor and also a friend of the injured
Airport Manager Kevin Daugherty speculated the pilot was
unfamiliar with the Frederick airport, because transient aircraft
usually park on the flight line at Landmark Aviation, he said.
FAA registration lists the owner of the plane as 210 Centurion
Group LLC of Laurel, MD, and Daugherty said the plane returned to
its home base at Baltimore's Martin State Airport on Friday
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the
incident, Peters said.
