When A Selfie Led To A Tragedy For The Newly Wed

We all look forward to taking good pictures when we are on a vacation, don’t we? These memories last for a lifetime. Unfortunately, for a couple in Kozhikode, it turned out to be their worst nightmare. 

Rejinlal and Kanika tied the knot on March 14th. They, however, had to postpone their post-wedding vacation to a later date due to personal commitments.

They were excited to vacation in a tourist spot close to Kuttiyady on April 4th. The couple’s loved ones had accompanied them too. As the couple was taking selfies near the Kuttiyadi river, they accidentally slipped off a rock and fell into the river.

The locals nearby immediately went to their rescue. Despite their efforts, they could only save Kanika. Rejinlal, who didn’t know how to swim, succumbed to his injuries. 

Kanika is in critical condition at the Malabar Medical College. According to the Peruvanamuzhy police, they have recovered Rejinlal’s body and are preparing the inquest. They shared, “We are yet to ascertain if it was a post-wedding photoshoot which was in progress. We can determine this after we conduct the probe. The woman was rescued from the lake and she is now under treatment.”
