A tragic incident occurred in Bali, Indonesia when the husband of a well-known cosplayer lost his life to a rogue wave. The couple were on a trip to celebrate the husband’s birthday when tragedy struck, causing a stir on China‘s social media platform Weibo.

Karina, a famous cosplayer, and her 34 year old husband Johnny had travelled to Bali to celebrate Johnny’s birthday. They had been staying at a local hotel since November 6. The following day, on Johnny’s birthday, the pair along with their friends went to the beach and swam quite a distance from the shore, which was designated as a dangerous zone. Johnny got caught in a current and was swept away.

While Karina tried to swim to his aid, she ended up going under the water. Fortunately, she was rescued in time, but her husband Johnny was not so fortunate. Yesterday, the rescue team found Johnny’s body, reported Sanook.

Johnny’s family has since travelled from Xiamen to Bali. The incident has drawn significant attention from Chinese citizens, with Johnny becoming a hot search term on Weibo from last night until now.
