Woman 'decapitated by lift after cable from earphones gets stuck in doors'

A WOMAN was decapitated after she got her head stuck in the doors of a lift in an Indian factory, according to reports.

Her severed head was found on the ground floor, but her body was dragged up with the lift to the third floor, according to The Indian Express.

Investigating officer M N Saporiya of Bapod police station told the paper: “The elevator, which is without a roof, is used specifically for carrying goods.

"We are speculating that she was using her phone and absent-mindedly she tried to stick her head outside the lift, which started going up, and the accident happened.

"So her body was dragged till the last floor and head got severed.”

Her body was retrieved with the help of fire officials and handed over to the family after post-mortem.
