Bidar: Unable to unfasten seatbelt, woman gets charred alive inside car

Daijiworld Media Network - Bidar (SP) 

Bidar, Dec 5: In an unfortunate incident which happened at Nirna Cross in the district on national highway 9 in Humnabad taluk, a woman got burnt alive inside a car. The incident happened in the early hours of Thursday, December 5. 

The woman who failed to unfasten the seatbelt and therefore got engulfed in fire happened to be Kalyani (42). Kalyani, her husband and two children were travelling to Hyderabad from Udagir in Maharashtra in a Hyundai car. As the air-conditioner of the car behind heated up, fire broke out. Kalyani's  husband Udayakumar and two children escaped from danger in time before the fire consumed their car.

The scene of Kalyani struggling to come out of the grips of the seat belt even as the flames leapt over her provided a heart-rending sight. All the three survivors of the ordeal are in serious condition and were admitted into a local hospital for treatment. Local police personnel visited the spot and took stock of the situation besides registering a case.

    Sorry to hear this sad incident. RIP Kalyani.
    We can't blame car manufacturers. Normally seat belts are given to protect your head banging to the steering wheel and throwing you out the vehicle during accidents. May God bless all passengers a safe journey.

Now this world is under full of negative and bad directions .Only our faith in God can save .

    SUE Hyundai Inc for this ghastly accident! .. do not take it for granted.

    This should not have happened as it was tested before production that such incidents are taken care of and certified that it is safe.

    Also sue the Indian certification board who gave the authorization for giving go ahead for Indian road operations.

    If we all sit quiet , it is taken for granted. So lets start a MOVEMENT not to take the citizens for

    Rest in Peace Kalyani.

    Seat belts and helmets should be made optional. Helmets are banned in Commonwealth boxing as they cause more serious head injuries as the field of vision is restricted . Seatbelts can kill in case of a fire.

    Please don't blame seat belt or helmets.both can save lives. But people don't know how to use or don't like to use always complain.

    From 2016 helmets and headgears are banned in Olympics boxing also , the reason as I mentioned earlier is they cause more brain damage and I am sure the participants know how to wear them.
