A young mother died after getting her neck wedged in a car window which was then closed by her toddler, police said.
Yulia Sharkom, who was celebrating her 21st birthday with friends, was trying to pull her two-year-old daughter from the vehicle through the half open front seat window in Staroe Selo, Belarus.
He broke the jammed window to release her, and pulled her “lifeless body” from the car.
Yulia, from Žabinka, died eight days after the tragic accident having suffered asphyxia leading to brain damage.
“On 31 August around 4.30pm her husband found her unconscious, with her neck jammed by the window of the front left door of their family car.”
