Miami, FL | An Oregon couple’s honeymoon vacation in Florida took a dramatic turn of events as the newlywed took a selfie of himself just moments before he fell victim to a deadly shark attack.
The 34-year-old insurance salesman died in a gruesome fashion, losing great quantities of blood as he was being transported to South Miami Hospital, his right leg being torn off by the beast.
Local lifeguards were still able to bring the man onto a boat and to the shore before an ambulance took him off to the emergency room. Tragically, the man that had been married only a few hours died in the arms of his beloved one on the way to the Hospital.
“He always dreamed of coming back to Florida one day and visiting Walt Disney World once again, as he had done when he was 4 years old” explains the widow. “I’m glad he had a chance to live his dream before he left this world” adds the woman in tears.
The couple that celebrated their marriage in Orlando’s Disney World, were on their way to the airport when James Crowlett decided he wanted to go for a dip, hours before the flight back home.
“It was a beautiful day, there was not a cloud in sight, how could this all go so terribly wrong?” asks his mother, witness to the horrific scene.
“My baby is gone forever” she adds, visibly traumatized by the latest events.
The man’s selfie that was automatically published on his Facebook page took his friends by surprise, some even thinking it was a joke.
“Watch Out for that great white shark! Lol!” could you read in the comments from one of his friends, obviously not aware of the drama behind the picture.
James family rapidly took down the picture off his Facebook wall the next day.
