From the Times of London, "Woman Strangled by Hijab in Freak Accident":
A young Muslim mother wearing a hjiab was strangled in a freak accident while go-karting with her family in Australia yesterday.Hat Tip: Theo Spark.
The 26-year-old died when her headscarf became entangled in the wheel of the go-kart and tightened around her neck during a family day out at Port Stephens, 137 miles (220km) north of Sydney in New South Wales.
Police said that the woman, her husband and children had been holidaying on the coast when the accident occurred during a day trip to the karting track.
The woman’s scarf appeared to have been pulled across her throat from one side of the body to the other, and the longer part was wedged near one of the wheel axles of the go-kart, they added.
Witnesses told the Sydney Morning Herald that the woman’s clothing was “wrapped around her neck”.
Sharon Scott, who was waiting to use the track when the accident occurred, said: "The kart hit the wall and stopped and she was just slumped over."
Emergency workers were called to the circuit and the woman, who suffered severe neck and throat injuries, was transferred to a nearby hospital, where she later died
