In the mind-bendingly depressing annals of “damn near anything can kill a person,” we give you death by rickshaw misadventure. The Telegraph:
Niamh Corrigan, 29, of Bromley, south London, was flung from the back of a motorised rickshaw after a night out with her Scottish fiance Paul Fortuna.While changing seats with her partner, the vehicle turned sharply on a bumpy mountain road. Mr Fortuna tried unsuccessfully to grab her, and then battled to resuscitate Miss Corrigan at the roadside as they waited for an ambulance to arrive.The tuk tuk had been travelling no more than 25 mph at the time of the incident, Southwark Coroners Court heard.Miss Corrigan – a personal assistant at City investment bank Goldman Sachs – had arrived in Phuket for a friends Christmas wedding earlier that day, and planned to relax and explore the country.
This is the place where we often put some clever or funny comment, but we’re just not seeing it tonight.
