Sorry, you'll just have to die

(AP/CBS) LINDENHURST, N.Y. - A preliminary investigation into the death of a woman who fell on an escalator at a Long Island Rail Road station reveals that she died after her clothes got entangled in the escalator's treads and she was asphyxiated. More here:

You mean nobody had a knife with which to cut her loose?  That's mighty strange ... oh, wait.

She was asphyxiated? Really? Are they SURE? Asphyxiation results when there's insufficient oxygen in the air the victim is breathing. I suspect that she was actually strangulated which is the result of compression to the neck (in this case, by her clothing).

I love it when libs hurl around medical-sounding words and then defend themselves with "you know what I meant" when you double-check what they said.

I didn't know there was a difference until you said so. I'm probably too old to remember though.
