Washing a car is more dangerous than you’d think

LanguedocLiving, Oct 5

If ever you’ve been tempted to nip into your car while it is going through a car wash, think again.

A 68 year old man put his car through a carwash in Montalieu-Vercieu in Isère, and at the last moment when the machine had started, he tried to recover something from his car. Unfortunately he found himself trapped by the rollers, and he was unable to free himself.

He was suffocated by the rollers, and when help arrived, they could not revive the unfortunate pensionner.
