The widow of the snorkeller killed by a boat propeller on Sunday said today she forgives the person who hit him.

Charles Brignone went missing after a snorkelling trip and he was found yesterday morning. His float was found on Sunday.

Speaking to, Josianne Brignone hoped that people would learn from this tragedy - that owners of seacraft would respect snorkellers more to avoid tragedies that shattered families, and that snorkellers would be responsible while out at sea.

She said she did not know what happened, whether the boat was too close to shore of if her husband was too far out, but she forgave the person who hit him.

“I do not think he did it on purpose and if he knows that he hit him I pray to God to comfort him.”

The funeral is tomorrow at 8.30 a.m. at the Immaculate Conception Church in Cospicua.
