Seychelles Tourism Minister meets Swedish tourists involved in road accident last Saturday afternoon in Beau Vallon

Seychelles Tourism Minister meets Swedish tourists involved in road accident last Saturday afternoon in Beau Vallon (Forimmediaterelease.net) Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, on Sunday afternoon visited Ebbe Alfredson and Elizabeth Sparring at Seychelles Hospital after hearing from a small Beau Vallon property owner that these Swedish visitors had been involved in a road accident at Beau Vallon.

Minister St.Ange said that he felt it was his duty as Tourism Minister to visit the two tourists who were sadly hit by a truck last Saturday afternoon after they had been on a tour of Victoria Market and of the Botanical Gardens. Ebbe Alfredson and Elizabeth Sparring had been holidaying in Seychelles for the last two-and-a-half weeks spending time in small Seychellois-owned hotels in Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue before being involved in the road accident that landed Elizabeth Sparring in the hospital with serious injuries and Ebbe Alfredson with injuries on his arm.

“It is, of course, sad to see tourists visiting us landing in the hospital with serious injuries resulting from road accidents or from any other unfortunate incidents. We depend on tourism as the industry that is today holding the economy of our country. We all need to be conscious that the tourism industry is very fragile, and the livelihood of so many Seychellois depends on a successful tourism industry. The road accident last Saturday afternoon will result in the tourists going home early and in the small Seychellois-owned hotel loosing days that they had already been pre-booked for at their hotel," said Minister St.Ange.

“Above all, these visitors who said they had enjoyed their holidays in Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue now will leave Seychelles probably in an air ambulance. This is a sad end to their holidays," the Seychelles Minister said as he ended his statement.

Road accidents are becoming too frequent, and some of these accidents are resulting in the loss of lives. It is time for drivers to be more conscious when sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle, because it is too easy to have an accident that causes unfair injuries and even loss of lives for innocent bystanders.
