Tourists die in quad-bike accident in Maldives

British couple on honeymoon killed in collision with tree

A couple from the UK on honeymoon in the Maldives were killed in a road accident at the weekend when the four-wheel bike they were riding collided with a tree. They were staying at the Kuredu Island Resort on the white sandy beaches of the northern reef of Lhaviyani Atoll. Staff there found the couple, who have not yet been identified, on Saturday morning. A third tourist was injured in the crash. “They were riding a four-wheel scooter similar to a quad bike, which met with an accident,” police spokesman Ahmed Shiyam told AFP.
There are 1,200 islands in the Maldives, situated in the Indian Ocean, and tourism is a major source of revenue.
