A Russian fitness coach tried desperately to save a woman who jumped into rough waters at a Spanish resort, but unfortunately would die in front of his wife, who is filming the tragic incident.
30-year-old Daniil Gagarin was seen trying to rescue fellow fitness expert Emma Mönkkönen, of Finland, after she jumped off a cliff and into the waves at the La Zorra cove in Torrevieja.
After pulling Mönkkönen onto a rock, both Gagarin and the 24-year-old woman would lose their grip after a wave swept them away and under the water. They got swept out to the Mediterranean as Darya, his wife, cries helplessly.
The woman’s body was recovered a couple of miles away while Gagarin’s was pulled out the following day.
Alyona Maas, a Russian expat in Spain, called “daredevil jumps” from the perilous rocks “completely reckless.”
He told East2West: “I want to say to adrenaline lovers: please find yourself safer activities.”
Emma was only 24 years old.
