Bride-to-be Swept by Big Waves to the Sea During Marriage Proposal

Bride-to-be Leafil Alforque Swept to Sea During Marriage Proposal in Oregon coastThe would-be bride, Leafil Alforque, 22, was swept away by big and deadly waves in time for her boyfriend's marriage proposal on the Oregon coast.

Below--Was her body recovered?

Scott Napper had an engagement ring in his pocket, and ready to ask Alforque, "Will you marry me?", but the romantic proposal turned out to be deadly for the couple.

Napper said that the big waves subsided around the rock when they began to walk to it; however, a strong wave approximately 3-feet high suddenly swept his girl to the sea.

"I turned into it to keep (her) from getting pulled under it, she was about 30 feet away, getting swept away," Napper added.

The 45-year-old man even tore his jacket to get rid of extra weight from his body yet when he looked up again, Alforque was already gone.

"That's the last I saw of her. I yelled for her. I was praying to God," he continued.

The couple had been dating since 2005 when they met on the internet. Alforque hails from the Philippines.


Nova Alforque, 25, sister of the would-be bride, said the family hopes the body will be recovered soon.

"My mother is always crying, day and night. She wants my sister back. Even if she is dead, she wants her body to bury," she said in a phone interview from the Philippines.

Fox News reported, Tillamook County Sheriff Todd Anderson "said deputies found nothing in their investigation that would lead them to suspect anything other than what they were told. But he noted that bodies washed into the ocean tend to surface seven to 10 days later and said the investigation was still open."
