A mother is recalling the terrifying moment she was scalped when her long hair got caught in a car’s fan belt. Alon Abare, who now wears a wig to cover her injuries, was checking on a mechanical problem in her car in October 2016.

When she leaned into the hood, catching her hair in the belt. “I just without thinking reached in and when I did so my hair got caught,” the mother of four told Inside Edition. She yelled for help and her children came to try and get her out.
Thankfully her son quickly jumped into action, in thirty seconds or less his mother told Inside Edition, to turn the car off and stop the fan belt.
This is the severe trauma you can go through if you catch your hair in a fan belt of a car, don’t forget to put your hair up and out of the way and to turn the car off if possible!
