Muhammad Malik and Dr. Noor Shah were “deeply in love” when they wed last week. Yet, four short days later, the newly-wed couple drowned on their Caribbean honeymoon.
“It’s a devastating loss,” Malik’s father, Maqbool Malik, said. “This is a shock beyond belief. And it’s a tragedy of different dimensions when you have to lay two children to rest in a joint funeral.”
The Manhattan-based couple was swimming at a Turks and Caicos resort near Como Parrot Cay when strong riptides swept them away.
The groom’s father blames the resort for “lack of signs warning swimmers of the possibility of riptides.”
He remembers the couple by remembering their true love for each other.
“The kind of chemistry that we saw in those two human beings was amazingly fascinating. They loved each other.”
