This Is Why You Don’t Stand Behind A Jet Engine

Saint Martin's Princess Juliana International Airport is about as close as you can get to landing/departing passenger aircraft without special security clearance. It makes for spectacular photos and videos, which encourages the kind of stupidity on display here.

It might seem like a good idea to stand behind a Jet Blue Airbus A320 along the fence in front of the beach right up until the moment that the unbelievable amount of thrust picks you up, launches you in the air, and propels you head first into a concrete barrier.

The woman in this video is shown getting medical treatment on the scene later, so hopefully she made it out with nothing more than a seriously bruised ego. Although, she may not be able to spare the braincells.
