It’s like the year I was going to go skydiving for my 17 birthday, and in some strange coincidence, three people died in separate sky diving incidents over the summer leading up to my birthday… weird how that happens….
One person has died in an explosion at a hotel in a Turkish holiday resort.
At least 10 others – including tourists and hotel staff – were injured in the blast in the coastal town of Belek.
Police said a liquid petroleum gas tank exploded in the kitchen of the five-star Kaya Hotel in the southern Antalya region.
The dead man was a member of staff at the hotel, Turkish media said. Tourists from Russia and Norway were among those injured, according to police.
Ambulances and firefighters rushed to the scene and evacuated the hotel, Turkish TV said.
Television pictures showed shattered windows at the hotel.
Russian media said two tourists from their country had been hurt.
Doctors have so far not released any details of their condition.
Police said the explosion, which happened at about 0630 (0430 GMT), may have been caused by hotel workers trying to refill the gas tank.
