A newlywed husband has drowned while trying to save his wife from death in the mountain town of Yefran, local sources reported.

The tragic event happened when the couple, both from Zintan, were having a picnic by a seasonal lake called “Galtat Al-Hamara”in Yefran’s Taghmah village.

The sources said the bride was walking beside the lake, around 15 meters deep, when she suddenly slipped and fell in the water. Her husband jumped in after her to save her from drowning, but unfortunately his attempt was in vain, leading to their death. 

The locals managed to lift them out of the water after hours of search.
