Dog lover dies after wearing pet’s lead round his neck after it gets stuck in car wheel – Telegraph
Rob Emslie, 47, had been wearing his dead dog Sheevah’s lead in a noose around his neck when he got into his 4×4 after a night out.
He did not notice that, having slammed his car door shut, the tail end of the trailing lead remained outside the vehicle.
The plumber reversed. As he did so the nylon rope lead became entangled in one of the car’s front wheel axes.
The force snapped Mr Emslie’s neck, killing him instantly.
The accident took place in the early hours of Monday morning at the Butterfield Road restaurant near the Kragga Kamma nature reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region.
