Woman swept to death during marriage proposal
A woman was caught off guard by a wave and swept out to sea during a marriage propsal in Oregon. The "sneaker wave" caught the couple off guard at "Proposal Rock," a popular spot for marriage proposals in the state.
A romantic marriage proposal on the US West Coast turned deadly for the bride-to-be when a wave swept her out to sea.
Scott Napper had taken 22-year-old Leafil Alforque to Proposal Rock near Neskowin Beach to pop the question at a place that got its name from couples ready to marry.
Mr Napper and Ms Alforque had been dating since they met on the internet in 2005.
But Ms Alforque had arrived in Oregon on a visa from the Philippines just three days before the fateful trip to the coast, The Oregonian reported.
Mr Napper said the tide had receded around Proposal Rock when the couple began to walk to it. He planned to propose and give her the ring he carried in his pocket.
