Two families from Ukraine thought that a trip to an idyllic forest would be ideal to celebrate the recent wedding of two of their members. So they traveled from their home to a forest near Mount Hoverla, the highest mountain in Ukraine, and camped. What they did not know was that the beautiful spot was a battleground in both world wars.

But the dream trip turned into a bloodbath from a World War I buried bomb. The debris dismembered Lydia McCarthyuk’s body while her brother was killed.

The 31-year-old had traveled to the Ukrainian resort for a late honeymoon after marrying Norbert Varga a few months ago in Berkinshair, Britain.

How the tragic accident happened

It is believed that The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a rally in the Carpathian Mountains near the Hungarian border, killing at least 12 people. The bomb exploded while telling stories and drinking tea.

Macarchuk said: “The fire created a special atmosphere and we had a lot to say. “It had been so long since we had seen each other.”

Mr. Varga, a radio and television producer and photographer, went to his tent around 9pm to pick up his camera when he was shocked by an explosion that shook the earth. He said: “As I was preparing my equipment, the sound of an explosion and screams broke the silence. I ran to the fire as fast as I could, screaming Lydia’s name. “

His wife recalled the moment the blast hit the campsite, saying: “In a second I felt like someone had taken a rock and thrown it in my face, especially in my nose.

I had a whistle in my ears and there was a silence where I could only hear myself. I turned and covered my face with my hands and began to pray for myself. Then I realized that I was not alone. Everyone was shouting, everyone was in pain».

Mr. Varga tried desperately to find his wife, who had been shot in the left eye and in the face. Her arms were also broken, leaving the bone visible, while her legs were dismembered while a muscle was partially missing.

She heard her brother bleeding next to her

Makarcuk, who moved to the UK in 2017, heard the sighs of her brother, Miroslav, 29, as she lay on the ground, blinded. Speaking from the Ukrainian hospital where he is being treated, he said: “My only regret is not calling him to tell him that I love him.”

It took 90 minutes for the doctors to arrive, and Miroslav and another man died. Others suffered serious injuries.

Varga said: “I will never forget Miroslav’s dying snort. I tried to tie his head but it was too late. He fought for his life for two hours. I still wonder, what could I have done more? Why not me? Because they; “War movies are the closest thing to what I experienced that night, I will never forget it.”

As she did not have travel insurance, she now faces a huge medical bill, for which her family in the UK is raising money at GoFundMe.
