A single mother of three was killed when the wing of a jet struck her lawnmower.

Samantha Hayes, 27, was mowing the grass at a small airstrip in Oklahoma when she was hit by a 1972 Bananza A36. Pilot James Baxter, 70, was ready to land on the Broken Bow Airport runway when he observed Hayes in the field on her mower.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Baxter attempted to draw up the plane to get over the young mother but fatally smacked her in the head with the jet’s wing.

According to investigators, Hayes died at the scene of the accident from head injuries. It’s uncertain whether Hayes worked at Broken Bow Airport, which is thought to be a small municipal airport with no air traffic control.

Samantha Hayes

On Facebook, Hayes was remembered as a loving friend and devoted mother to her three children.

“Samantha Hayes was a wonderful great mom to her three babies,” wrote one friend. “She was a single mum who worked hard to give them a safe and loving home.

“These babies knew they were loved everyday all day!” wrote one friend. “Them babies will know how much their momma loved them.”

“You were one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, I’ve never heard you say a cuss word or talk down on anyone,” another acquaintance commented. You were full of life and had your entire life ahead of you with your wonderful children.”

The pilot, Baxter, was unharmed. The FAA has no age restrictions for pilots, while commercial airlines are prohibited from hiring anyone above the age of 65.

There has been no further information released concerning Baxter, and no charges have been made against him. The incident is still being investigated.
