Couple of days ago I read here on LL the story about a muslim woman 'strangled by her burkha in freak go-kart accident' in Australia. Seems like the same thing happened here in Europe, only we had bad luck: the muslim survived:
A woman from Heerhugowaard (the Netherlands) is suing the Linnaeushof playground in Bennebroek for 11,000 euro after an accident in which her headscarf got entangled in one of the machines.
In 2007 the woman from Heerhugowaard joined an outing of an Islamic association. While on the go-karts, her headscarf got loose, according to the interim decision by the court in Haarlem. The scarf got wrapped around the rear axle and squeezed her windpipe. She had to be brought to a hospital.
The Muslim woman blames the playground of having insufficient safety measures and supervision, reports Noord-Hollands dagblad.
Today the court has ruled that 1) She is responsible for protecting herself against this danger and 2) it may be the case that there weren't enough safety measures, but she will have to prove this.
