The woman, 58, who remains anonymous, is believed to have fainted as she stepped outside their car and fell to the ground. 

However her condition went unnoticed by her husband, 62, who allegedly continued to run her over.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her body was taken to Skiathos Health centre.

A police officer told the Sun Online: 'She appears to have been prone when he inadvertently hit her, causing fatal injuries at 4am this morning.

'That suggests she may have got out of the car and fainted. She is believed to have died on the spot. It's a very bizarre, very sad incident.'

Investigations are ongoing.
