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 tour boat 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.
