Four days after a woman slipped at the Northam Race Club, the 48 year-old has died as a result of an infection that developed after the fall. The death is the second tragic fatality at the racecourse after club employee Doug Fernihough was struck by lightning in November 2017 while filling divots at the track. He suffered a heart attack and internal injuries before dying in hospital. On Friday, the 48 year old woman was showing insurance inspectors around the Northam track when she slipped and fell in water from the recent heavy rains. The woman was taken to Royal Perth hospital with a bad cut to her leg. She died on Tuesday, reportedly from an infection that worsened over the weekend. The woman was an administrative employee of the race club. Worksafe, WA’s workplace health and safety regulator, have confirmed that they will investigate the incident. The West Australian have reached out to Northam Race Club for comment.
