“It was supposed to be a fun time.” This might be the thought going through the minds of the grieving families of Turkish heiress Mina Basaran and her closest friends who died from a horrific plane crash on an Iranian mountainside last Sunday.
The beautiful Turkish heiress was about to be married to her fiance, Murat Gezer, and wanted to enjoy her last day as a single woman with all her closest friends. Dozens of Instagram pictures showed that Mina and her best friends had a wonderful, wild time in the Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai.
But their party was ultimately cut short when the private plane they used to get back home inadvertently crashed leaving no survivors. It was reported that the plane held eight passengers, including Mina, and three flight crew.
A fast recovery was made impossible by the harsh weather near the crash site. But it has since then cleared and investigators report that they have recovered the plane’s black box along with 10 dead bodies. There is still no word about the exact reason why the plane went down. According to a report by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, a witness claimed that the plane was one fire before crashing against the mountainside. The victims’ families flew to Shahr-e Kord.
Mina Basaran’s wealthy father owns a private holding company, several yachts, banks, and even energy companies. Mina was supposed to be next in line to take over their family business but sadly, there are no happy ending here.
Here are some of the netizens’ reactions to the story:
