OAP death due to 'safe' wheat bag; INQUEST.
AN OAP died after a wheat bag used to warm her bed was overheated in a microwave, an inquest heard yesterday.
Doreen Ghiloni, 82, used it as a hot water bottle but it smouldered, filling her home with smoke.
A neighbour helped rescue her in Leeds on May 22 last year, but she died later in hospital.
Her family bought the bag as they thought it safer than a hot water bottle.
Coroner David Hinchliff said he would write to safety chiefs to highlight the lack of instructions on the wheat bags.
At Leeds coroners' court on Tuesday Chris Clarke Chris Clarke may refer to:
"I know we cannot go back and help your mother but hopefully we can help other people in the future."
Mr Hinchcliff recorded a verdict of misadventure misadventure n. a death due to unintentional accident without any violation of law or criminal negligence. Thus, there is no crime. (See: homicide)
MISADVENTURE, crim. law, torts. An accident by which an injury occurs to another. .
