A bystander was recording a Porsche 918 Supercar on the racetrack when it lost control and crashed into a crowd of spectators at the Papaqli-ghall Istrina Motorshow in Malta.
Reports coming out of Malta confirm that 26 people were injured including a 6 year old girl who is in critical condition after receiving serious injuries.
The President of the Republic, Marie Louise Coleiro-Preca arrived on the scene shortly after the incident took place. The President, who also Chairs the Malta Community Chest Fund said that the charity would immediately help the victims and their families with medical expenses and counseling.
Oddly enough, President Marie Louise Coleiro-Preca didn’t use this horrible tragedy to push some political agenda or demonize supercar enthusiasts – perhaps Obama should take a few notes on how to react when there is a crisis here in the U.S.
