Mother, daughter trapped in sauna die

JICIN, Czech Republic (RNN) - A mother and daughter died in a sauna when the door handle broke off and they couldn't get out, police in the Czech Republic said.

The two women, ages 65 and 45, were using the sauna at a friend's house, police said.

"The owner thought they were taking too long to come out so she went to check and found them lying on the floor," said Iva Kormosova, a police spokeswoman in a statement. She said that they had been in the sauna for about 90 minutes.

"They tried to break the window on the door, but failed," Komosova said.

Medics declared them dead at the scene, the Guardian reported.
