Even in the last breath of despair, pulling me out of a deadly waterfall,” she says.

In the short text, Marina recounts that she was able to alert the emergency services because at the last moment Luis was able to throw the backpack with the mobile phone at her, while standing next to his friend.

The picture Marina posted on Facebook with her tribute.

It seems unbelievable, a nightmare, something that cannot be assumed to have happened,” she states.
Marina explains that, unfortunately, the rescue services could do nothing to save the lives of her partner and her friend Martín.

Now two big stars will shine in the sky. Luis, you will always be the love of my life and the one who taught me to grow and to love,” she wrote.
