Man falls 130ft to death during row with wife as ‘they didn’t notice cliff’

A man has passed away after he plummeted off a cliff during an argument with his wife.

The duo are understood to have been strolling along near the hills outside Dundar near Bursa, north-eastern Turkey.

In the heat of their argument, the duo are reported to have careered off the 130ft (40m) drop, local authorities report, seemingly because they didn't notice the cliff.

The husband, Ali G., 35, who managed a coffee shop, passed away from his injuries.

His wife, Arzu G., 32, is however understood to have survived the horrifying fall but was badly hurt.

Arzu is understood to have flagged down cars after she managed to make it to a nearby road, begging them to stop.

Seriously injured, she was taken to a medical practitioner by a bus driver.

State prosecutors have ordered for the man’s body to have an autopsy. Investigations into the horrific incident are ongoing.

News of the accident first made it to press on Tuesday, September 27, although further details about the incident remain unclear.

The hills in Dundar have seen large-scale quarrying operations take place, with the town nestled between the massive excavations and beautiful climbs.

The isolated community is surrounded by pinewood forests and has few major roads running in or out.

In June of this year, a British tourist was crushed to death in Turkey in the city of Bodrum in the country’s southwest.

Patricia Bernadette Ward, 71, was hit by a car while enjoying a trip away with pals.

She had been walking home at around 2am when she was involved in the incident after the driver lost control and mounted the pavement.

The car crashed into a bollard and trapped Ms Ward.
