A woman was strangled to death yesterday after her Islamic head dress became tangled in a go-kart axle.
The 27-year-old woman was holidaying with family at the Port Stephen’s Go-Kart track on the NSW Central Coast when the freak accident occurred.
The Herald newspaper reports that the woman went into cardiac arrest after her hijab became caught at high speed and tightened around her neck.
Paramedics said the woman suffered severe neck injuries. She was flown to John Hunter Hospital in a critical condition but died a short time later.
