Narrative:
Peruvian authorities say a woman trying to approach the country's Cabinet chief with a letter walked into the spinning rotor of a just-landed army helicopter and was killed.

Cabinet chief Pedro Cateriano had just arrived in Peru's northern Tumbes region when the accident happened Thursday. He had come to supervise government projects aimed at lessening the possibility of flood damage from heavy rains expected from the El Nino weather phenomenon.
