The woman who died at a Humboldt, Sask., airstrip on Saturday received her fatal injury when she walked into a propeller, the RCMP says.The accident happened at Humboldt, Sask., 113 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
The accident occurred around 11 a.m. CST, shortly after the small plane the 40-year-old woman had been a passenger in landed.
The woman, who is from the Annaheim area, had emerged from the passenger side of the single-engine Cessna 210 and was walking toward the nose area when it happened, the RCMP said.
The plane wasn't moving, but the propeller was still spinning when she walked into it, police said.
It's believed the woman was trying to take a photo just before she was struck, police said.
Transport Canada is investigating the incident. Police haven't released the name of the woman at the request of family.
