    Woman dies as escalator catches her scarf on Montreal Metro

    A commuter has died after her scarf got snagged in an escalator at a Montreal Metro station and strangled her.

    The unidentified 48-year-old woman was found dead at the bottom of the moving staircase at Fabre station in the north of the Canadian city.
    Her hair was also apparently caught in the escalator in Thursday morning's incident.
    Montreal police said they would work with the coroner's office to determine the circumstances of the fatality.
    Police spokesman Jean-Pierre Brabant told reporters: "What we know now is that the woman's scarf was caught in the escalator.

    "When she bent over to try to get the scarf out, her hair was also caught.

    I know how Duncan died and it's real testament to the sheer strength of silk but how long would a scarf have to be to get caught in an escalator? Wouldn't it be long enough to step on as you were walking?

      Maybe she was really short.

        As I understand it, the edge of the scarf got caught, then she bent down to free it and her hair also got caught. Ouch! What a way to die, wearing a scarf!
