A Campaign For My Beautiful Daughter

#missingmarna
Press:

"The 21-year-old wedding planner had been a passenger on the bike her aunt had been driving on May 24. They had hired the bike two days before they were due to fly home.

The pair were travelling behind a lorry with impatient motorists waiting behind them. Ms Clarke moved to the near side of the road to allow them to pass but their path quickly narrowed. They ended up running out of road and plunged down a verge. 

Miss Carthy suffered a head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene, while her aunt was left with a fractured pelvis.

Miss Carthy lived in Turkey for six months when she was 18, where she worked as a wedding planner. 

Nottingham Coroner's Court heard the headgear she had been provided with offered inadequate protection. 

Detective Sergeant James Greely, of the East Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit, told the inquest: 'From my analysis of the evidence, the issue wasn't so much if there was any apparent problem with the quad bike, it was more to do with the quality of the helmet. 
'What Amarna needed was protection when she came off that bike.'

The pair only had provisional licences, but this had not prevented them from hiring a quad bike.
Detective Sergeant Greely said tourists only required a provisional licence to ride.

He added: 'At the end of the day, if [hire firms] can get away with being able to supply less quality helmets or machines that are not maintained as they could be, that's going to increase their profits.'

Nottinghamshire's coroner Mairin Casey said: 'This is a tragic accident. There's nothing that I have read or been made aware of in the manner of driving that caused or contributed to this event.
'But the safety precautions, which would have been taken in this country, were not applied in the same way in Turkey.
'If anything good is to come of this, the message goes out to the public that they need to be very vigilant of the safety standards abroad when hiring any vehicle of this type, both in terms of the vehicle and safety equipment.' 

Miss Carthy, who has four sisters, Kyanne, 12, six-year-old Madison and two-year-old twins Ada and Lylah – lived in Turkey for six months when she was 18, working as a wedding planner.

She had just set up a health business with her mother, Tashaka, 40.  
In the wake of the tragedy, her mother set up a petition calling for stricter safety laws in Turkey.

She said: 'Whether it helps one or two people or a whole country full of people, something has to come of it. So long as I have breath in me I will push for her cause and try to save lives.
'Both Amarna and Jakadi had helmets on, as you can see in the picture taken of them on the day our beautiful Amarna died.

READ SOME OF THE SUPPORTER'S COMMENTS BELOW

Did you know.. It is only a legal requirement that a person "carries" a helmet on a quad or bike in Turkey, not actually wear one? There are also no legal requirements for companies to carry out regular safety checks to insure these vehicles are road worthy. There are no requirements regarding the quality of the helmets issued along with a rented bike, or quad and issuing a helmet is not compulsory. This happens in many other countries too.
THIS ALL NEEDS TO CHANGE. Together we can make this happen and save lives.

My Petition: 

My 21 year old daughter Amarna Carthy was killed tragically on a quad bike in Turkey on the 24th of May 2016.

She was travelling on the back of a quad driven by my sister Jakadi (left) who was also injured. Both the Amarna and Jakadi had helmets on, as you can see in the picture taken of them on the day our beautiful Amarna died. Here you can also see that the legally acceptable helmets issued, are totally inadequate. Amarna died from catastrophic head injuries and her helmet was collected from the scene, in pieces.

We would like to change this, so another family doesn't have to suffer this awful loss and fly their loved one home the way we did. Compulsory crash helmet laws with possible journey distance limitations when renting quads, need to be in place so no more lives are wasted like our beautiful girl. We would also like to push for a full drivers licence requirement when renting a quad, rather than the provisional that is now in place, reflecting the seriousness and power of these vehicles.

Currently it is only a legal requirement that a person "carries" a helmet on a quad or bike in Turkey, but not actually wear one. There are also no legal requirements for companies to carry out regular safety checks to insure these vehicles are road worthy. There are no specific requirements regarding the quality of the helmets issued along with a rented bike, or quad and issuing a helmet is not compulsory. This happens in many other countries too.

THIS ALL NEEDS TO CHANGE.

Together we can make this happen and save lives. The law needs to be a protection to holiday makers, in countries where riding without a helmet is considered normal. Please help us change this situation for the better, by signing and sharing our story with others and hopefully forcing better helmet safety laws around the globe! #missingmarna
Kind regards, Tashaka Baumber and family.

"By implementing adequate health and safety policies and equipment both here and in Europe, many lives can be saved. When travelling abroad many companies don't use equipment that is of adequate standards to keep individuals safe. This I believe is ever individuals human right to have health and safety standards abroad and at home, it must be paramount in all companies." - DEBORAH SANDERS

My sister nearly died in a quad bike accident last year. These things are death traps! She was one of two people to have a near-fatal accident that day, in the same town. The law needs to protect travelers who don't understand how dangerous these things are.
Best cause I've supported all year!  - SARA FALZON
