Thirty-five Ukrainian tourists sustained minor and moderate injuries in a bus accident in the province of Mugla in Turkey, with the driver, a Turkish citizen, dying on the spot due to a heart attack, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko has told Ukrinform.

According to tentative reports, there were 41 Ukrainian citizens on the bus. Thirty-five Ukrainian tourists suffered minor and moderate injuries. They are now receiving the necessary medical care. There are no threats to their lives.

"It is likely that the driver - a Turkish citizen – lost control of the vehicle due to a heart attack. He died at the scene," Nikolenko said.
