NTSB description

On June 13, 1999, about 1750 eastern daylight time, a Piper PA-28R-180, N7485J, registered to a private individual, had a deplaning passenger strike the propeller at Wimauma Airport, Wimauma, Florida. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed at the time, and a VFR flight plan was filed for the 14 CFR Part 91 personal flight. The airplane was not damaged. The private-rated pilot and two passengers reported no injuries. One passenger was fatally injured. The flight had originated in the Bahamas at an unknown time.

After landing, the pilot taxied the airplane to the terminal area so the passengers could deplane, because it was raining. The engine was still running when one passenger exited the airplane and went aft on the wing. A second passenger exited the airplane, went forward on the wing, and struck the propeller.
