Mysuru: Hemavati (35), wife of Krishna of Mellahalli in the taluk died after committing a fatal error.
Rat menace has been rampant in the locality where she stayed and hence the rat poison was kept ready for use.
Earlier this week, she mistook the collapsible tube for toothpaste and brushed her teeth with it. When she was taken severely ill, she was taken to the K R Hospital. Treatment failed to revive her and she succumbed to the toxic effects.
Take care, errors can be fatal!
