Woman Dies After Garage Door Falls on Her Neck
In Chicago over the weekend, a woman was found pinned by her neck under her garage door.
According to the report from chicagobreakingnews.com
, the door was damaged from an earlier accident involving the woman’s daughter, who drove into it. Family members speculated that Yneekah Garcia, a fiercely independent single mother, did not want to ask for help with the garage door.
Investigators suspect that when Garcia returned home late Friday evening, she tried to manually lower her 200-pound door. Instead, it fell and pinned her by the neck, crushing her. A full investigation is still pending
