In Ibiza, a Belgian couple's holiday dream turns into a nightmare: Saskia dies after two sailboats collide
Saskia and Bernard, a Belgian couple, have long been making the most of their days off on the Spanish island of Ibiza. Last Sunday, as they relax aboard a boat with companions, the enchanting setting will be the site of tragedy.
Saskia is enjoying the sun with four of her companions on the foredeck while Bernard is behind the mainsail. Boaters unexpectedly get confused and scream, highlighting the rear of the boat. Bernard swivels and sees another sailboat heading towards them: "I saw another boat coming towards us at full speed". The impact is inevitable.
The stunning is fierce. Saskia is thrown overboard and dies. Stunned, Bernard struggles to understand. "I was totally lost. A few hours earlier, we were still happy during the transit to Formentera, and out of nowhere my better half was dead. Our six companions were questioned by the Spanish police after the accident, but I didn't could not. It is not yet known how the accident could have happened. Was not our captain paying attention and, in this way, did he not see the other ship? "We have no idea," said the Belgian vacationer.
