British tourist, 27, dies in best pal's arms after scooter crash on his 'first holiday abroad' in Turkey | The Sun

A BRIT has reportedly died in his best pal's arms following a horror scooter crash on his first holiday abroad in Turkey.

Kyle Barrow was travelling from the beachside town Side in the tourist hotpot Antalya region when he smashed into a palm tree.

The 27-year-old Manchester man lost control of the vehicle when he was crossing a busy intersection in the southern Turkish coastal town, local media claimed.

Pals said a lorry was involved in the tragic accident.

Pictures showed the scooter on the ground destroyed next to the tree on Side Suleyman Demirel Boulevard.

Emergency services were called to the scene and the Brit was rushed to a local hospital with serious injuries but later died.
