"...but there's no sign saying don't climb rocks with wet flip-flops!"
Barış Batı and his wife Ahu Batı, of Mersin, came to Kelebekler
Vadisi (Butterfly Valley) in Ölüdeniz hamlet of Fethiye by boat
and, wearing flip-flops, reached the rocks surrounding the valley
at about 10 a.m. At this point, Barış Batı decided to try to scale the
steep rock walls of the valley, hoping to reach a waterfall seven meters
(about 24 feet) above.
Ahu hanım holds low-down, guilty flip-flops as Barış gets rescued.
When he couldn't get traction on the rocks with his wet flip-flops,
Barış fell to the ground in front of his wife's eyes. Suffering from
a 25 centimeter (about 10 inches) gash in his head, Barış lay on the
ground in a pool of blood. A bit later a UMKE (National Medical
Rescue Team) rescue team reached the otherwise-inaccessible
Kelebekler Valley via Belceğiz beach.
If it wasn't for people, this place would be paradise.
The UMKE team walked for about a kilometer and climed up on
the rocks to reach the fallen Barış. Then, Barış was moved to
Kumburnu beach by boat, and an ambulance took him from there
to Lokman Hekim Esnaf Hospital.
