Club news: Tragedy strikes AMZS on World First Aid Day

Publication date: 25 September 2014

On 13 September 2014, World First Aid Day, Miha Baloh, a 30-year-old instructor at AMZS’s Save Driving Centre, and Lara Safran, a 17-year-old activities organiser for AMZS’s Family Hour road safety programme, tragically lost their lives on their way to an event to promote road safety.

To mark World First Aid day, the Automobile and Motorcycle Association of Slovenia (AMZS) and the Slovenian Red Cross organised an event aimed at raising awareness of the importance of first aid – a call for people to refresh and update their first aid knowledge and skills. The event took place at the MOS International Trade and Business Fair in Celje.

In cooperation with the Triglav insurance company, another road safety activity was organised to take place on the very same day in the Gorenjska region. Miha and Lara were driving to the event in a van equipped for Euro RAP activities. Sadly, they never arrived. Though the exact circumstances are unclear, both were tragically drowned after attempting to cross a bridge over a stream that was experiencing extreme flood conditions, as the van they were travelling in was swept away by rushing water.


Our deepest condolences go out to the families involved and the AMZS.
