(Scroll down for video) A family trip turned deadly, when a husband and wife fell off a cliff while taking a selfie.
The couple’s two young children witnessed the freak accident. The family of Poland, was vacationing in Cabo da Roca, Portugal, when they went sightseeing on Saturday.
According to authorities, the parents crossed a security barrier to take a selfie together near the 260 foot high edge while their children watched from behind the barrier.
Unfortunately, the couple took a step too far and went over the cliff, falling into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean below. Another couple witnessed the accident and called emergency services.
Bad weather prevented rescuers from recovering their bodies on Saturday. The bodies were finally recovered on Sunday. The couple’s children, 5 and 6 years old, are in the care of Polish diplomats and are receiving therapy after being traumatized by witnessing their parents disappear into the water.
