(AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE) — Two women died in a sauna in the northern Czech Republic after the door handle came off, trapping them inside, police said Sunday.

“The mother and daughter aged 65 and 45 were taking a sauna at their friends’ place in a garden colony,” police spokeswoman Iva Kormosova said in a statement.

“The owner thought they were taking too long to come out so she went to check and found them lying on the floor,” she said, adding that the women had been in the sauna for around 90 minutes.
