  1. Foam party at luxury resort kills three
    July 24, 2008 - 10:05AM

    Two Israeli teenagers and a Turk were fatally and accidentally electrocuted at a foam party in a luxury hotel in southern Turkey, officials and the media reported Wednesday.

    The power leak that caused the deaths occurred when the foam machine operator slid and fell, dropping the device, Mehmet Yilmaz, manager of the five-star hotel in southern Antalya province, told the Anatolia news agency.

    Two of the dead were an 18-year-old Israeli tourist and her 14-year-old brother, a diplomat from the Israeli embassy here told AFP. The third was a 20-year-old Turkish hotel employee, Anatolia reported.

    The agency had earlier identified one of the dead as a Russian tourist.

    The Turkish operator of the foam machine and a Kazakh man were hospitalized in serious condition.

    Foam parties -- in which revellers party on dancefloors layered in bubbles -- have become popular in hotels and clubs at Turkey's Mediterranean coast, where millions of foreigners spend their summer vacations each year.
