A 27-year-old tourist from Europe died and her friend sustained serious injuries after their quad bike flipped over multiple times off a sandy hill in Sharjah’s Al Badayer.

According to the police, the accident was reported at 10.45am on Friday, January 22. After the police were alerted, the victims were airlifted to a hospital in Dubai.

While one of them was declared dead on arrival, the other is recuperating.

The police said the two women were riding the bike on a sandy hill, when they lost control over it. The bike fell on their bodies as they were flung to the bottom of the hill.

This is the second such accident in Al Badayer this month. Last week, three Arabs were injured in a quad bike crash.
