Alanya police said that 17-year-old Muhammet Bozkurt and 19-year-old Caglar Savasci, were run over by a tractor trailer while lying on the road along with five other men.

According to the police investigation, the group stopped outside the airport to watch the planes taking off and landing.

The group then decided to take a selfie with a plane landing in the background around 9:00 p.m. A truck approached, and the driver did not see them because it was dark.

Three of the men managed to roll away at the last minute, but Bozkurt and Savasci were struck and killed by the truck. Police officers who arrived at the scene, noticed that the men smelled of alcohol.

The driver remained at the scene, and no charges have been filed.
