A fitness coach's daring heroism quickly became a double tragedy. After he jumped into the ocean to save his friend and was swept out to sea, his wife was still recording.
This dramatic video shows Daniil Gagarin jumping into the turbulent waters to save Emma Mnkknen, a fellow fitness expert in Torrevieja.
Through it all, Daniil's wife Darya is filming the event. Daniil grabs Emma at one point and they both hold onto a rock. Darya screams to her husband and suddenly, a powerful wave crashes on top of them both and they are swept out into a Mediterranean sea.
Darya can be heard crying out for Daniil in her voice. But Emma and Daniil disappear.
According to a report, Emma's body was found a few miles from the scene. Daniil's corpse was discovered the next day.
