A woman in Punjab, India died in a go-karting accident after her hair got tangled in the wheels of the vehicle and her scalp was ripped off. Puneet Kaur, 28, had gone to an amusement park in Pinjore with her husband Amardeep Singh, their two-year-old son, and a few other relatives. The family, which lives in Bathinda, was on a holiday and had decided to stop at Pinjore Gardens for the amusement park on their way back from Timber Trail in Parwanoo, NDTV reported. The family had booked four go-karts for six members. Puneet Kaur was with her husband in one kart and her son was in another with his grandmother. They were about to complete the first lap when Kaur's hair flew out of her bun and got stuck in a rear wheel. She was wearing a helmet. The go-karts were moving at a high speed and within seconds, her scalp was separated from her head, the report added. Kaur was taken in a critical condition to hospital, where she was declared dead, a Hindustan Times report said.
