The boyfriend of Hellen Wendy, the Canadian-based Kenyan nurse who drowned while swimming has opened up about the last conversation they had before the traumatizing accident.
Alphonce Nyamwaya said that they had a short conversation before Wendy went to the swimming pool.
“I was preparing myself for the afternoon shift when she gave me a video call. She told me she was headed to the swimming pool to relax after completing her morning shift. She inquired whether I had eaten before we said goodbye to each other,” he said.
Mr. Nyamwaya also said that his girlfriend drowned in a private residence pool.
In a video that has since gone viral, Wendy is seen engaging her friends before moving to the deeper side of the pool.
She started swimming while recording herself and kept diving in the pool while holding her face under the water for several seconds swimming back to where her phone was to come and read the comments.
Wendy who looked happy played with the water for about 10 minutes until she dived into the point that looked like a deep end of the pool.
She started gasping for air and could be heard making gurgling sounds while kicking and screaming.
At 11:54 minutes, she made the last sound as the video went silent and the water remained still.
The video kept recording for 3 hours before an unidentified individual came at around 3:09 hour mark and noticed her in the pool.
Wendy shared her life and experience with her friends and she looked happy.
“I will always be here. Even if I die this year, I don’t know whether you will come and take my body,” she jokingly said while laughing.
Wendy who was the firstborn child in a family of six completed her high school at Itiero girls in 2017 and later moved to Canada after she secured a ten-year study visa.
