In 2006, Zoe began college at the University of Alabama on a Prime S. Osborn Foundation Scholarship.

She planned to begin pursuing her degree in gemology from the Gemological Institute of America in Carlsbad, California in August 2011. Zoe's name, which means life in Greek, was strikingly appropriate given her vivaciousness, beauty, and love for life.

    This is so sad. She had such a promising life. I wonder what kind of accident it was.

    Please pray for Rob McClendon and his family….. Rob was with a girlfriend in Spain and was riding a moped and was hit from behind and thrown under a car. His girlfriend was killed and he is in critical condition. His mother, Sally, just lost her husband about 2 years ago. They were visiting Rob in London and he had a massive heart attack and died several weeks later after being brought back to the states. The family is Rob McClendon, mother Sally and brother Jackson. There is a link on the CaringBridge web site. The family is from Montgomery, Alabama.

    Tourist Killed in Ibiza Scooter accident
    A 24 year old girl was killed, when she was involved in a collision with a car near the village of San Miguel today. She was a pillion passenger on a scooter driven by a 28 year old male companion. The scooter lost control at a dangerous bend and was then hit by an oncoming car. The driver of the scooter is in a serious condition at Can Misses Hospital in Ibiza Town, where he has head and chest injuries. The occupants of the car were not injured but treated for shock at the scene. The injured man, named today as American Rob Mc Lendon, was later removed to the intensive care unit of the Lady of Our Rosary private clinic in Ibiza, as his condition deteriorated.

    Update 15/7/11 As reported at 16.00 in Ibiza, Mr Mc Lendon remains in a serious condition.




    Girl Killed in Ibiza Scooter Accident Named

    Zoe Bromberg
    The 24 year old young woman, who tragically lost her life in a road accident near Benirras, has been named as American Zoe Bromberg from Jacksonville, Florida. She had only graduated from the University of Alabama in May and was to return there for the ceremony in August. Zoe was the pillion passenger on a scooter which was hit from behind and into the path of an oncoming car, at a dangerous bend on the road to the hippy beach of Benirras. Her companion and friend Rob Mc Lendon, was with her on the scooter and is now fighting for his life in the private clinic of our Lady of the Rosary in Ibiza.

    Family members of Mr Mc Lendon are now at his bedside and his condition has stablised and improved since he was admitted on Tuesday. Mr Mc Lendon is conscious at times and aware that family members are with him. He has movement in his body and there is no brain swelling. Doctors are monitoring his situation in the intensive care unit of the clinic.

    We would like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest sympathies to the Bromberg family on the tragic loss of their only daughter.

    Update 16/7/11 14.10 Mr Mc Lendons condition remains critical. His punctured lungs have improved and his kidneys are working and stabilised. Doctors have said Mr Mc Lendons excellent physic and fitness have been a huge aid to his recovery which will be slow.
