The city of Dibba Al Fujairah was blanketed with grief and sorrow after the death of a 10-year-old girl who was strangled to death after her shila (head scarf) was accidentally wrapped and pulled hard around her neck.

The Emirati girl, a grade-5 student, was riding her quad bike in front of her house at Al Tawain area when her scarf got loose, and part of it fell under the wheels of the speeding bike, according to informed sources.

"The little siblings of the victim, who screamed for help, alarmed their father who ran towards his little daughter, released her, tried hard to resuscitate her, and gave her some first aids."

The panicked father, losing hope, rushed his daughter to the Khalifa Specialty Hospital in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah for medical attention.

"The little girl, having been in a critical condition, was admitted to the intensive care unit, but she was later declared dead."
