British tourist 45, is killed in speedboat crash near Turkish resort

British woman, 45, dies and husband is seriously injured after Turkish tour boat crashes into water taxi ‘while one of the captains was fixing his hair’ 

A British woman has died and her husband left in critical condition after the boat they were riding in crashed off the coast of Turkey.

The 45-year-old Briton was killed around 1.30pm Thursday off the coast of Marmaris, southern Turkey, when her speedboat collided with a water taxi.

Her husband was critically injured in the crash and was in a stable condition in hospital last night.

Police have not given a reason for the crash, but local reports suggested one of the boat captains was distracted while ‘fixing his hair’. 

Four others riding in the water taxi – including the 22-year-old captain of that vessel – were also hurt, though less seriously.
