Today I wanted to give you a heads up on this potential threat.
A woman in Gujarat, India, was decapitated Monday after the cables of her earphones got stuck in an elevator gate at a plastic products manufacturing company, according to the police.
Unfortunately the lady must not have heard about Bluetooth cordless ear buds.
After wrapping up her work on the ground floor, she took an elevator that was used to transport manufacturing products and other heavy materials to get to the fourth floor. Vishwakarma, who was either listening to songs or talking to someone using her earphones, knelt against the railing of the elevator and looked down as she ascended the floors. Authorities suspect as the elevator approached the upper level, her earphones got entangled in the collapsible gate, the Times of India reported.
Listening to music via headphone during work hours is no way to get a head my friends. Don’t goldbrick at work. It can cost you more than your job.
This reportedly caused her head to get stuck between the slab of the floor and the elevator and the impact caused it to get severed from the rest of her body. When authorities arrived at the scene, they found her head on the ground floor while her body was inside the elevator on the fourth floor. Her earphones remained inside her ears even after decapitation. They had become disconnected from her phone, which was left behind in her hand.
Always keep your head on a swivel and look out for danger. IF this lady had been alert and realized there are things other than guns that can kill you, she would still be dittybopping around work enjoying T-series. Now even Excedrin can’t help her. A modern death for modern times if I ever heard of one.
