Female Tourist died due jet blast while American Airline take off.
No, she died due to gross stupidity. Don’t blame anybody, any airline or any organisation to do with the airport. There are large DANGER signs all along the fence warrning of the danger and not to stand by the fence. People doing so ignore the signs and do it AT THEIR OWN RISK – nobody makes them stand there while an aircraft is taking off. They do so in spite of the signs and have to take personal responsibility for anything untoward that happens. INCLUDING death.
