- WARNING TO ALL WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!!
I just saw a segment of "Oprah" reporting on the deaths of at
least 14 women in the United States due to broken necks from usually
harmless purse snatching!! Women who wear their purse straps across
their chests rather than over their shoulders are at risk for broken
necks and, possibly, decapitation!! Purse snatchers' usual method of
operation involves approaching an unsuspecting woman, quickly pulling
her purse from her shoulder, and fleeing the scene. Purse snatchers do
not check to see if the purse is around the woman's neck first!! Purse
straps will not break, your neck most likely will!!!!!!
Fourteen women have already died!! Beware!!! The first
reported case of a purse strap-related death occurred in Los Angeles
in 1987. A young woman was leaving a local mall when a man mistakenly
broke her neck in an attempt to steal her purse, which was holding a
measly $20!!!!! X-rays revealed the woman's neck was nearly severed in
two! Another woman in 1988 suffered not only a twice fractured neck
bone, but a completely shattered jaw! One woman survived this grisly
ordeal only to be left quadriplegic for life!!
The scariest news is that with purse snatching on the rise, 6
deaths were reported just over the past year!!! Remember this: more
purse snatchings are reported during Christmas time than any other
season. Please tell your mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends: DO
NOT WEAR YOUR PURSE STRAP ACROSS YOUR CHEST!!!!
