A couple were crushed by a giant set of golden arches outside a McDonald’s. Russell and Carolyn Janke were injured when the iconic symbol toppled on their car.
The couple were knocked unconscious and suffered multiple injuries as they sat in the car park outside McDonald’s on the Navajo Nation reservation in Window Rock, in the US.
Navajo acting police chief Steven Nelson said: “It was a freak accident.” He said the wind was gusting up to 60mph winds at the time. The couple’s daughter-in-law, Ann Janke, told US media that Mrs Janke has a fractured spinal column and a fractured sternum, while Mr Janke, a retired engineer, was hit in the head and had to have more than 70 stitches.
