Sani Aliyu, 21, Killed When He Was Struck Twice In The Head By Plane Propeller At Statesboro-Bulloch County Airport In Georgia

Georgia college student, 21, is killed instantly by propeller blade in front of his DATE after renting Cessna plane to fly her to dinner in Savannah 
A student in Georgia was killed on Sunday when he walked into the propeller of a Cessna plane and was struck twice in the head after using the aircraft for a date. Sani Aliyu, a student at Georgia Southern University and originally from Nigeria, had chauffeured his date on a 58-mile journey on the plane for dinner, but was struck dead in front of her when they landed back home. Aliyu, 21, had flown to Savannah, Georgia, from Statesboro, where Georgia Southern University is located, with his date and two pilots he knew in a small Cessna plane before touching back down in Statesboro. When the plane doors opened, Aliyu's female friend stepped off and headed to the back of the plane, but Aliyu headed to the front, where he was struck twice by the plane's propeller. He was pronounced dead at the scene at Statesboro-Bulloch County Airport. Bulloch County Coroner Jake Futch revealed Aliyu died immediately upon being struck despite an ambulance being called to the airport's ramp area where the incident occurred at approximately 10.45pm. 'They flew to Savannah to go on a date, flew back, landed at the Statesboro Airport, and the young lady got off the plane and walked toward the back of the plane, and he got off the airplane and walked toward the front of the plane, and when he did, the propeller hit him,' said Futch.
