The English text, designed to cut deaths from household fires, read:
"Never jump straight out of a window. Lower yourself on to cushions etc."But in the Urdu version it said:

"The Urdu word for cushion is gadda. But the word for donkey is gadha. It appears whoever translated the leaflet has mixed the two words up or the spelling has been printed wrongly."Mohammed Iqbal added: "Everyone has had a good laugh."
