Would-Be Bride Swept Out To Sea

Proposal Rock

My God, this is an unbelievable story.

NESKOWIN, Ore. — A romantic marriage proposal on the Oregon 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. Napper and Alforque had been dating since they met on the Internet in 2005.

But Alforque had arrived in Oregon on a visa from the Philippines just three days before the fateful trip to the coast. Napper said the tide had receded around Proposal Rock on Saturday when the couple began to walk to it. He planned to propose and give her the ring he carried in his pocket.

About 10 feet from the rock, a wave about 3 feet high suddenly came toward them.

“I turned into it to keep from getting pulled under it,” Napper said.

By the time he turned to find Alforque, only 4-foot-11 and 93 pounds, she had been caught by the receding waters.

“She was about 30 feet away, getting swept away,” Napper said. (H/TFOXNews)

I know you are expecting some snarky comment from me, but I’ve got nothing. This is a terrible, terrible story. And while the investigator in me is screaming, “Question the boyfriend!,” the human being in me believes this is a tragic accident.

    Doghouse – I know. Seems like a made up story, doesn’t it?

    Rick – Terrible. Can’t imagine how the boyfriend feels.

    Admiral – Especially in Oregon, it seems.

    Vincent – Okay, I am not laughing at that . . . but it is funny.
