A very dreadful accident of Sameha Mahmood, a young mother who was crushed to death under her own personal BMW after she failed to set the handbrake properly.
From the reports by Metro Uk, Sameha Mahmood was killed on the steep driveway of her parent’s home when the car which still had her daughter inside rolled over her.
sameha, 25 had driven the car to drive her mother, Zahida Akhtar, for a birthday party at her aunt’s home when the tragedy happened.
A coroner heard that Sameha had telephoned her mother at around 8.20pm to tell her she was waiting outside. But when Mrs Akhtar went outside three minutes later, all she could see was her daughter’s shoes strewn on the driveway and her car at the bottom of the drive in Whitelands Road, High Wycombe.
Mrs Akhtar said: ‘It was strange, like she was trying to run and was leaving her shoes behind’.
The panicked mother shouted out her daughter’s name but it was not until a passer-by suggested looking underneath the car that she discovered she had been crushed.
She said: ‘When I looked down I was shock. ‘I saw her on one side and I started screaming for help. I could see she was not breathing.’
The inquest in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, heard that Mrs Akhtar’s son, Mohammed Usman Mahmood, was inside the house in his bedroom at the time. He described how he heard a thud ‘like someone was dropping a wheelie bin’ and then someone screaming for two to three seconds.
When he went outside he saw his mother repeatedly screaming at a man saying ‘save my daughter’ and ‘get her out from under the car’.
‘I could see my sister’s baby in the child seat in the rear of the BMW and my mother was just screaming and screaming’, his statement said. ‘I gave the baby to my mum and told her to take her inside. Such horror mahmond must have seen!!
