A 60-year-old England woman died last year after falling on a metal straw in a glass, which caused the utensil to go through her left eye and into her brain, according to multiple news reports. Elena Struthers-Gardner was in her home with a mason jar drinking glass in her hand when she fell on Nov. 22, Inside Edition reported. The 10-inch metal straw was in the jar's screw-top lid and pierced Elena's left eye socket, causing a traumatic brain injury, according to authorities.
