A man and his wife were killed and their three children were injured when their car crashed into a roadblock in the eastern Bekaa valley, the state-run National News Agency reported on Thursday.
NNA said Michel Bsaibes, 37, and his 34-year-old wife Dana al-Khoury died when the man, who was driving his Suzuki four-wheeler, crashed into concrete blocks on the side of a road, the agency said.
The accident took place after midnight in the town of Chtaura. They were on their way back home from a visit to Our Lady of Lebanon pilgrimage site in Kesrouan.
Their three children 8-year-old Joy, Joseph, 4, and Louna, 2, suffered bruises and broken bones and were taken to the Bekaa hospital, NNA added.
My name is Douglas. I'm visiting from the states. This morning I was drinking coffee and read the article. Hours ago I learned that Michel is my cousin. Why am I posting this?
As an American Lebanese, I see such potential in Lebanon to be the greatest country in the Middle East if not the world. In order to achieve this, we have to learn from this horrible tragedy.
While some of you above who I don't know wrote 'what a waste of life' others can learn what I've learned. This young man, who I knew and met on my visit last year no longer can help our great country. But you all can.
This is really sad but what frustrates me, is when I hear people calling god in such tragedies... What kind of theology, sophisticated explanation or excuse or argument a believer can come up with to convince a rational mind that god / jesus and their allies (virgin mary, the saints etc) they all care about their faithful children... Or even better, a family went at night to visit a shrine and pray, they get rewarded with this... Poor kids and damn everything that is related to safety and responsible driving in our country...
When will Lebanese (particularly those living outside Beirut) start using seat belts?
God help those children
