Cardiac arrest, drowning caused deaths of newlyweds who went to Maldives

The autopsy report on the newlyweds who went to Maldives for honeymoon showed that they died of cardiac arrest and drowning, according to a report by Katrina Son on GMA News TV's Balitanghali on Monday.

The father of Leomer Lagradilla said the autopsy showed that his son died of cardiac arrest, while Leomer's wife Erika died due to drowning.

The couple's remains arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport on Saturday.

Leomer's parents and relatives received his coffin, while Erika's kin, including her mother, received her remains.

"Masakit pero dapat naming tanggapin," said Gloria Perez Callado, mother of Erika.

Callado thanked all those who helped repatriate the couple's remains.

Officials of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration and the Department of Foreign Affairs were at NAIA on Saturday to assist the couple's relatives.

Interment has been scheduled on January 26 at the Lumban Memorial Cemetery in Laguna.

Leomer and Erika, who got married last December 2018, were on their honeymoon when they drowned off Dhiffushi Island while snorkeling last January 13.

Erika worked in Jeddah, Leomer in Singapore. After 10 years into their relationship, they decided to get married and had their wedding last December. —KG, GMA News
