No lives saved this time...
In Yıldızeli district of Sivas province the night before last,
Göksel Cankurtaran (whose surname means "lifesaver")
was driving along a road that is unused because it is below
a dam and he drove his car into a pond there.
People coming to fish at the site yesterday around noon
saw a body floating on the surface of the pond. Rescue
teams arrived at the scene, searched the pond and pulled
the bodies of Göksel's mother Fatma (66), his wife Selay
(34) and their two chidren Selcan (8) and Fatma (7) from
the sunken car. Driver Göksel Cankurtaran's body has
still not been located.
There is no warning sign posted at the point where the
road meets the water nor has the road been closed.
Yıldızeli district is in northwestern Sivas province.
