The airport crew member who died horrifically a few weeks ago when she stepped in front of a plane engine was repeatedly warned about the impending dangers, according to a report issued on Monday by the National Transportation Safety Board.

Courtney Edwards, a 34-year-old mother of three children, was a Piedmont Airlines ground handling agent at Montgomery Regional Airport. Shortly before 3 p.m. on New Year's Eve, she and other ground crew members gathered for two brief safety meetings because the captain of an approaching plane had radioed ahead to warn everyone that he would keep the engines running for a two-minute cooling-off period after the plane landed. The in-cabin auxiliary power unit had apparently not been working.
