Last month, a Florida man was killed by a spinning plane propeller at the Cleveland Regional Jetport. According to Cleveland Police Department public information, L.K., age 69, was found near his private plane with a severe head injury. He was rushed to the hospital where he later died. The plane involved in the incident was a Cessna 182.
The National Transportation Safety Board released its preliminary report on the accident, which says that L.K.’s wife was outside of the plane as he performed a preflight inspection of the aircraft. According to the report, L.K.’s wife heard the propeller move and what sounded like the engine trying to start. When she looked up, she saw her husband tumble to the ground and she called for help.
