Was the driver blind - I mean, how come he failed to see a human being lying on the sand? It's something one would expect to see on a beach! UNBELIEVABLE!

The man reportedly had a ring with "Nevriye" written on it. Brilliant, now everyone with a relative with that inscription is going to be worried, and one will have found out about the death of a loved through a story in a newspaper. That's thinking it through.
