A two-year-old girl killed her mum by accidentally hitting a car window switch, closing the glass on her mother’s neck.
Yulia Sharko, who turned 21 on the day she died, was trying to pull her daughter from the stationary BMW through the half open front seat window.
The child then pressed the automatic switch which closed the window and cut off her mother’s air supply, say reports citing law enforcement.
Her husband Artur found the mother-of-two unconscious soon after the freak accident.
He broke the jammed window to release her, and pulled her “lifeless body” from the car in the village of Staroe Selo, in Belarus.
The distraught man called emergency services and she was rushed to hospital.
Yulia, from Žabinka, died eight days after the tragic accident, having suffered asphyxia leading to brain damage.
“Her brain suffered irreversibly due to clamped arteries”.
