Two teenagers on a road trip with friends in Turkey died after being hit
by a truck while attempting to take a selfie on a road.
The pair were part of the group of five young men who had taken a hired
car to travel on a trip from Alanya to Antalya, on the south-west coast
According to Police, the five friends had been drinking and friends of
the killed teenagers said they had stopped by the airport's perimeter
fence on their way back to look at the planes, and then all five of them
decided to lay on the road to take a selfie with one of the planes in
the background as it came into land.
But because it was already dark at 9pm, the truck driver didn't see
them, and ran over two of the boys identified as Muhammet Bozkurt, 17,
and Caglar Savasci, 19.
The other three escaped disaster after managing to roll out of the way
at the last minute.
