A New Zealand woman dies in the Caribbean after a jet engine blast knocks her to the ground. The 57 year old, whose identity isn't yet known, was doing what's known locally as fence surfing when tourists hang onto a fence to get blown back as the jets take off. The Independent's travel contributor Cynthia Drescher, whose tried out fance surfing, says cruise ships tell their passengers about the stunt but the authorities warn against it.
