In a horrifying video that is going viral on social media, a Russian fitness coach tries to save a woman who jumped into rough waters at a Spanish resort. However, he himself dies while saving her in front of his wife, who was filming the incident.
As per a New York Post report, fitness expert Emma Mönkkönen, 24, of Finland, jumped off a cliff at the La Zorra cove in Torrevieja on Thursday. The man in the video was identified as Daniil Gagarin, 30 who was trying to rescue Mönkkönen. The video was being shot by his wife Darya.
During the rescue, Gagarin pulled Mönkkönen onto a rock. However, both Gagarin and Mönkkönen lose their grip and fall into the churning sea as Darya cries helplessly.
The woman’s body was recovered a couple of miles away. Meanwhile Gagarin’s body was pulled out the next day.
