TWO Brits have died after their buggy plunged 200ft into a ravine while in Santorini.
The man and a woman, said to be in their 20s, were driving on the 1,853ft Profitis Ilias mountain on Sunday when the horror unfolded.
They were in a rented buggy on the mountain, which is the island’s highest peak and a popular destination for holidaymakers.
Rescue crews had struggled to get to the pair because the area was too remote.
The Brits were later declared dead at the scene and their bodies eventually removed from the ravine.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed the pair had died while in Santorini.
