Woman dies in escalator

A 48 years old Canadian woman has died from strangulation after her scarf and hair got caught in an escalator at a Montreal train station, Canada.

The accident took place just after 9am on 30/01/2014 Thursday morning at the Fabre metro station along Montreal's blue line.

Witnesses told police they saw the unnamed victim struggling to free her scarf after it got lodged in the teeth of an escalator on her way down to the subway platform.

‘While she was trying to pull up her scarf from the escalator, her hair get caught too and from there everything got tied up at the end of the escalators’ said Montreal police.
