An engaged couple who had visited the Sera Ella Falls in Matale to conduct a pre-wedding photoshoot had fallen off the falls.
As the Sera Ella Falls is a popular spot to hold wedding photoshoots, the couple too had arrived at the spot yesterday (June 28) with relatives and the photographer.
However, the couple posing for a photograph had fallen into the water during photo shoot.
The woman had been rescued by a cousin while no one had been able to save the man, according to witnesses.
Sri Lanka Navy divers launched a search mission this morning (June 29) and found the body of the man by afternoon.
The deceased is a 26-year-old carpenter from Pansilugama and had been set to get married on July 14.
