IIHA Expresses Its Sincere Condolences

The IIHA was deeply saddened by the information found on www.iihf.com that delegates from the Ice Hockey Associations of Armenia and Georgia died in a car accident on their way to the Semi-Annual Congress in Tunis.

Karen Khachatryan (President), his wife Gayane Harutyunyan and their son Levon Khachatryan from Armenia, and Denis Davidov (Vice-President), Lasha Tsagareishvili (General Secretary) and his wife Teo Berdzenishvili from Georgia drove in a jeep to Istanbul, Turkey, to catch the flight to Tunis, Tunisia.

In the region of Erzincan in eastern Turkey, 300 km from the border to Armenia and Georgia, the six persons were victims of a head-on collision with a bus on Friday at 2:45am on the Erzurum-Erzincan highway.

The Irish Ice Hockey Association expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and to the national member associations of Armenia and Georgia.
