An extremely sad accident has just been reported. A bride, along with her entire bachelorette party, has died in a plane crash when their plane hit a mountain.
The bride, a 28-year-old Turkish socialite named Mina Basaran, had posted photos online just hours before the crash. The group was returning to Istanbul from the United Arab Emirates where they held her bachelorette party.
Authorities recovered all the dead from the crash site in the Zagros Mountains outside the city of Shahr-e Kord, some miles south of Iran’s capital, Tehran, according to reports. Witnesses reported seeing the flame burst into flames before it hit the mountain. It is still unclear as to what exactly caused the crash.
The plane had been traveling for about an hour before the incident. Tracking devices recorded the aircraft rapidly gaining altitude and then dropping drastically within minutes, according to FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website.
"The daughter of a Turkish tycoon who was on the board of his company and in line to run the business was killed in a plane crash while returning from her bachelorette party in Dubai," reported the New York Times World.
