A pregnant woman and her husband tragically perished on Thursday in Kannur, north Kerala, after their automobile caught fire, according to authorities.
Five persons were inside the automobile, according to the police, and those in the back were able to escape with the assistance of onlookers who were vigilant.
According to witnesses, the couple’s seat belt became knotted, making it impossible for them to exit.
Reesha (26) and her spouse Prajith (32) were later identified as the deceased.
Reesha was in an advanced stage of pregnancy, according to relatives, and they were on their way to the Kannur district hospital when she started experiencing labor.
One of the onlookers said, “We made every effort to save them, but the car caught fire and we were concerned that the fuel tank may rupture as a result.”
Prajith halted the car and unlocked the back doors once it started to smoke. He ordered the family members out of the automobile. The couple attempted to undo their seat belts but were unable to do so.
Police claimed the car caught fire because of a short circuit after conducting a preliminary investigation, and forensic officials are also on the scene looking at the car.
