A woman in the United Kingdom died after falling on a metal drinking straw affixed to a mason-jar-style cup she was holding while at home, according to a coroner's report.

The 60-year-old, who suffered from severe scoliosis - curvature of the spine - was carrying a mason jar glass with a screw-top lid which fixed the metal straw in place when she collapsed and fell in her kitchen.

The 60-year-old retired jockey had mobility issues stemming from a horse-riding accident.

"I went to the kitchen door and could see Lena lying on her front at the doorway between the den and the kitchen", she wrote in a statement. After turning Elena over, Many saw the straw had gone through her eye-and it was still attached to the drinking glass.

"She was making unusual gurgling sounds", Mandy said, according to a coroner's report obtained by USA Today.

"I slid the glass off the straw and turned her over", she recalled.

Medical staff had never seen such an injury caused by a metal straw.

Elena was rushed to Southampton General Hospital after suffering the horror injuries. One Australian study over the 2018 Christmas period found that reusable goods such as straws and coffee cups had a sales increase of more than 1000 percent compared with the 2017 season.

Metal straws are now being used by people who are concerned with the environment and are being considered as the solution to reduce the usage of single-use plastic straws.

She reportedly had become alcohol-dependent in the months leading up to her death, but toxicology reports showed no alcohol in her system at the time of her fatal fall.

Speaking to reporters outside the coronial court, Mandy said she missed her beloved wife everyday.

"Even if they don't end a life they can be very risky".

Use of metal straws comes with potential risks particularly when used by children or mobility-challenged individuals like Elena.

Struthers-Gardner's brain stem, which controls breathing, was damaged by the metal straw.

"If someone does fall on one and it's pointed in the wrong direction, serious injury can occur", Allen was quoted as saying.

Her life support was switched off the next day.

Assistant coroner Brendan Allen stated that there is not enough evidence to explain why Struthers-Gardner fell and noted that no alcohol was present in a urine sample. I hope this never happens to anyone else'.
