China's lovers' leap into Wuhan Yangtze River caught accidently on camera

Sometimes you are intending to shoot a moment, but it is caught accidently and becomes a sad masterpiece.

This exactly what happened when a photographer who was trying to snap the fog shrouded bridge over the Wuhan Yangtze River in Hubei province of Central China.




While the photographer was busy composing the fog shrouded bridge, a desparate Chinese couple leapt into the river in desperation - only to be caught on the camera.

The horrific photographer later recalls:
'To be honest I didn't even see the first person jump because I was concentrating so much on the camera settings and I didn't realize at first that I had snapped the man jumping to his death.'
'It was only then after snapping the photograph that I heard someone shout that somebody had jumped. I heard him hit the water below and then seconds later a woman climbed onto the bridge and jumped as well..'
'I was totally paralyzed - there was no way I could get anywhere near her, I still had my hand on the camera and I tensed and shot off another few frames entirely by accident - but ended up photographing the woman as well.'
Police identified the man from some of the possessions he left at the top and said he was a 20-year-old migrant worker named as Liu Han, and believed that the girl who has not yet been identified was his lover.
