The incident comes less than 10 months after a new bride was killed in a golf buggy incident on the same popular island while on her honeymoon.

Sydney man Robbie Awad and his new wife Marina Hanna were holidaying on the Whitsundays island days after getting married on June 11.

It’s believed he had been performing a U-turn when the vehicle tipped over, resulting in Hanna suffering fatal injuries.
