More than 40 drown in seas, lakes, dams in Turkey during Eid​



Extract:
Some 43 people, including five foreigners, drowned in seas, lakes and dams in 22 provinces amid the long Eid al-Adha holiday.

According to data obtained by the state-run Anadolu Agency, 16 of those who died were children.

Istanbul and the Black Sea province of Amasya are two provinces with the highest cases, with five deaths each.

The northwestern province of Kocaeli and the southeastern province of Şanlıurfa follow both with four deaths each.

A family of four lost their lives while trying to cool in a dam lake in Amasya, including three-year-old Levent Canikli, who became the youngest victim.

It's also a terrible time for road deaths.
Personally I always avoid traveling any distances during holidays here.
