CARDIFF: A young woman who poked her head out of a train window was killed when she hit a tree branch, investigators have concluded.
Bethan Roper, 28, had her head outside the train carriage for a just few seconds when it struck the tree as she returned to her South Wales home from a Christmas shopping trip to nearby Bath last year, the BBC reports.
The branch’s report concluded a sign reading: “Caution: Do not lean out of window when train is moving” was inadequate.
“She was beautiful in every way. Our pain couldn’t be sharper or more justified, but I know that her goodness and fullness of spirit will live on in our hearts and actions,” Ms Roper’s father said after her death.
