“‘Til death do us part,” a common wedding vow for couples entering a new phase in their lives – marriage.

Erika Joyce Lagradilla, a newlywed overseas Filipina worker (OFW) in Saudi proved this after she tried to save her drowning husband while on their honeymoon in Maldives. Unfortunately, none of them made it out of water alive.

Witnesses of the drowning incident which resulted in the death of the newlywed OFW couple claimed that Erika tried to save the life of her husband, Leomer, before drowning to her own death.

According to DFA, the OFW couple was recently married and flew to Maldives on January 9 for their honeymoon.

The 29-year-old wife and her 30-year-old husband were guests in a resort in Dhiffushi island and were snorkeling when they started drowning.

Both were rescued by resort workers but were pronounced dead upon arrival at a local hospital.

Following the incident, Leomer’s sister said that they have met with DFA officials, as cited by a GoGetFunding page, which was created in an effort to raise funds for the repatriation of the couple’s remains.

During the meeting, DFA assured the victims’ families that they will be extending help in bringing the remains of the couple home.

“Accordingly, DFA will shoulder the expenses in sending Eka and Leomer’s remains back home,” a portion of the page reads.
