Cynthia Lynn Connelly Ryan of Montgomery County allegedly walked into the moving propeller of an airplane while on the tarmac at Bay Bridge Airport in Stevensville, Maryland. The plane accident resulted in a severe head laceration for the 41-year-old woman from Silver Springs woman.
The Associated Press added that emergency workers rushed Ryan to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma center in Baltimore, where she is currently listed in fair condition. Maryland State Police Sergeant Anthony Rounds from the Centreville barracks told the media that the incident is still under investigation. It is not clear why the woman was so close to the propeller or what caused the accident itself.
Although commercial plane accidents are rare – and although it is safer to fly in a commercial plane than to drive – plane accidents, plane injuries, and plane deaths are much more common at smaller airports and involve smaller planes. In fact, there are roughly 100 small plane accidents each month across the country.
