Bike Accident - Wire snaps on Mumbai highway, slits biker's neck

Wearing a helmet is just not enough for two-wheeler riders these days as danger lurks in arcane ways on the city's highways. In a bizarre incident on Western Express Highway yesterday, a 27-year-old biker was killed after an overhead metal wire snapped, slitting his throat.

The deceased, Israr Ahmed Khan, who worked at an electric works shop owned by his brother, was returning home around 5 pm from Marol along with his employee Ram Bhavan Pal (20), when the popped cable struck him. Khan sustained a fatal wound on his neck, while pillion rider Pal received cuts on his face and hands.

Israr Ahmed Khan, with Ram Bhavan Pal riding pillion on his bike, enters the Western Express Highway, headed for home in Nallasopara

Suddenly an overhead metal wire snaps and strikes Khan on the neck. Pal too is hit by the cable and receives injuries to his face and hands

Negligence of Private hospital

Pal rushed Khan, who was still alive, to a private hospital nearby, where he was denied admission.
Panic-stricken, Pal then took the still breathing Khan to Cooper Hospital in Vile Parle. He was declared dead on arrival.
