Join the Effort: Bring Moped Crash Victim Home from Turkey
A holiday that was meant to be filled with joy and adventure turned into a devastating tragedy for two British friends in Turkey. Kyle Barrow, aged 27, tragically lost his life in a moped accident shortly after their arrival in Antalya on Wednesday, June 7th. The unforeseen incident has left his family and friends devastated. In their grief, they have come together to raise £35,000 to bring Kyle’s remains back home for a respectful funeral service.
Kyle Barrow, along with his friend Cal Junior, aged 24, had just arrived in Antalya, excitedly planning a day of jet skiing and parasailing. The pair hired mopeds to transport them around, however, their plans soon took a heartbreaking turn. After setting off on the mopeds, Cal soon realised that Kyle was no longer behind him. Upon turning back, he discovered that Kyle had been involved in a severe crash and lay injured on the road. Despite Cal’s frantic efforts to save his friend, Kyle could not be revived.
In the midst of his grief, Cal encountered another challenge. He discovered that the insurance they had purchased for the trip did not cover repatriation costs. Now, Cal and Kyle’s girlfriend, Hannah Marie, aged 25, face the daunting task of raising £35,000 to bring Kyle’s body back home and provide him with a proper funeral.
Hannah, devastated by the loss of her beloved partner, shares that Kyle was her entire world, and they had countless plans together. She longs to have him back home, finding solace in having him close during this difficult time. Cal, grieving the loss of his best friend, fondly remembers Kyle’s enthusiasm for the trip and the joy he found in parasailing and jet skiing. Cal now feels a profound responsibility to ensure that Kyle receives a dignified farewell.
Upon hearing the heartbreaking news, an outpouring of support has emerged from friends, family, and compassionate individuals. They have joined forces to assist Cal and Hannah in their fundraising efforts. A GoFundMe campaign has been initiated to gather donations for Kyle’s repatriation. They successfully reached their goal and raised enough money.
