MONTREAL â€” A woman in her 30s is dead after her headscarf and hair became caught in a subway-station escalator. (Thanks to BCF)
In 2010 we had a similar accident downunder:
Muslim woman strangled by her burkha in freak go-kart accident
The 24-year-old woman, who has not yet been named, died a terrifying death today when a fluttering part of her burkha became caught in the wheels of a go-kart she was driving near the town ofÂ Port Stephens, north of Sydney.
The Muslim clothing the woman was wearing flew back as she sped around the track and part of it became entangled in the go-kart’s wheels.
She was strangled in a second and crashed the vehicle.
