She was a “beautiful soul” who was stolen from us way too soon, according to relatives of a bride who died after falling from a golf buggy while on her honeymoon in Hamilton Island.
Just 10 days earlier, Marina Hanna and Robbie Morgan exchanged vows in a magnificent wedding in Sydney.
The couple was on honeymoon on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays when she was killed after she fell from a golf buggy.
Ms. Hanna was riding along in the golf cart that her husband was driving.
“I just filmed her wedding … she was so happy to finally get married,” relatives and friends shared their condolences on social media.
According to preliminary findings, Mr. Morgan was turning around after the battery started running low.
The buggy flipped onto its side as it made the curve.
Seatbelts were installed in the buggy, according to the police, but Ms. Hanna was not using hers at the time of the accident.
“There is no indication of alcohol or dangerous driving,” the police added.
Before the island paramedic came, those first on the scene did CPR for some minutes, but she was unable to be rescued.
No training is necessary to rent a buggy, according to the Hamilton Island website, but drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a current driver’s licence.
