Dutch Army Sergeant 1st Class Robert Donkers, aged 33, was killed on 6th April 2007 in a tragic accident near Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan.
The patrol vehicle he was in left the road and ended up in a river bed trapping Sgt. Donkers.
Amazingly, he was still alive when rescuers pulled him out. Sadly he died later at a military hospital in Afghanistan.
