When I sa w her photograph, hair entanglement was the first thing I thought of. In my laboratory safety classes I talk about rotating equipment and the need to tie back hair and neckties.

Accord ing to one of the on-line articles, her hair was caught in the lathe.  The one picture does show her with quite long hair.
A real tr agedy that could have easily been prevented with a hair net or something si milar.
