This is really weird. How can someone be killed by the door? Unless maybe if they are on the outside and the plane is pressurised.

Maybe GD can make something of this forum? It is in Finnish.

From what I gather the pilot opened the door from the outside and it opened violently onto him. The APU was running at the time. It appears to be a hydraulic actuated door.
