On August 31, 2019, Yulia Sharko, 21, from the village of Staroe Selo in Belarus, was trying to take her 2-year-old daughter out through the BMW E34 car window when suddenly the child accidentally pressed the window switch, which closed the window on her mother's neck, killing her.
It was also Yulia's 21st birthday, she had just celebrated with her friends and family.
Yulia's husband Artur eventually freed his unconscious wife from the car window by breaking it, but she died about 8 days later at Brest regional hospital, south-west Belarus. Her brain had suffered too much damage from lack of oxygen.
Both Yulia and Artur had 2 children together, Margarita and Arianna.
