Woman Scalped While Working On Her Car

Woman Scalped While Working On Her Car

It was a terrifying moment when a woman was scalped while working on her car. Alon Abare is a hardworking mother of 4 and she's pretty handy around the house. So when her car was making an odd noise, she figured she would go ahead and check it out. That's when she opened the hood, while the car was still running, and leaned in to get a closer look.


In the blink of an eye, Alon's long hair was sucked into the engine and got wrapped around the fan belt of her running motor. Alon quickly screamed for help and two of her kids rushed to her side. Her quick-thinking son, Sam, quickly turned the car off as Alon's daughter, Logan, cut her hair free.

Alon was tragically scalped during the accident and is still undergoing extensive treatment for her injury. Now, this brave woman is warning others of the dangers they may not have thought of while working on a vehicle.

Auto safety expert Lauren Fix shows us a demonstration of just how easy this accident can occur. And when she recreates what happened to Alon, it was truly a shocking moment! But thankfully, Lauren is offering us some tips for how to keep yourself safe when checking out problems with your vehicle. Some of these tips may sound silly, but if they can help just one person practice vehicle safety, then it is totally worth it. We all need to remember this warning the next time we or someone we love work on a vehicle.
