A woman died after she slipped in a kitchen and landed on a knife sitting upright in a dishwasher.
The woman died in Monklands General Hospital
The freak accident happened in a house in Dunrobin Road, Airdrie, Lanarkshire, on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old woman was taken to the town's Monklands General Hospital.
However, she died shortly after admission.
A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said: "There are no suspicious circumstances and it is being treated as a tragic accident."
The last time this happened we thought it was a freak accident but this case does show there is a danger from dishwashers
The alarm was raised shortly after 2130 BST.
Six years ago a 12-year-old boy in Northampton was killed following a similar accident.
A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) said: "The last time this happened we thought it was a freak accident but this case does show there is a danger from dishwashers."
The organisation warned people to be extra careful in the kitchen.
"The advice we would give is that people should, if they can, make sure that they have knives pointing down in the dishwasher even though some manufacturers say otherwise," said the spokesman.
"We would also encourage people to keep dishwashers closed as much as possible."
