A woman mowing the grass at a small airfield in Quebec died after she was hit by a plane as it came in for a landing, authorities say.
The 27-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was operating a tractor on Monday near the runway at the Saint-Esprit airfield in Quebec, about 37 miles (60 km) north of Montreal.
The woman was taken to the hospital where she later died, Tessier said. She worked for a company that provided maintenance at the airport.
The pilot of the plane was not injured, but was in shock after the incident and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
The small airfield is used by private aircraft and that a skydiving company also operates there. The pilot was in his own plane, he said.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is investigating the incident and a team has interviewed witnesses, examined the aircraft and the tractor and collected other evidence at the site on Monday.
The plane was a single-engine Nanchang CJ-6 — a Chinese-built training plane that is usually flown by private pilots in Canada.
