The man, who along with his group of friends had been shining laser pens into the eyes of taxi drviers, was stabbed to death by one of the drivers. The other men also all received stab wounds from the aggrieved driver.
This tragic episode is unfortunately not an isolated case, and having worked closely with the father of another young man who also died on holiday, I have seen the effects that the sudden death of a loved one can have.
Unfortunately incidents such as this are often fuelled by alcohol and group bravado. Do remember that if you are planning to 'let your hair down' on holiday, alcohol will most likely have more of an effect on you if you are dehydrated from spending time in the sun. Accidents and incidents such as this do happen, and whilst a hangover may be gone by lunchtime the next day, other consequences of drinking too much can be far more serious and take much longer to deal with.
