Daughter Accidentally Inhales Dad's Ashes When Scatter Attempt Goes Horribly Wrong

This is the moment two women were left in hysterics while scattering their dad's ashes off a windy coastline - when the remains blew back in their faces


Belle Henry, 28, and Tyla Halls, 22, were understandably emotional as they set off to release dad Mark's ashes into the Bristol Channel.

But they were left giggling when a huge gust of wind rushed by just as they started to scatter the ashes towards the water - causing the remains to fly back in Tyla's face.

An amusing video shows her howling with laughter and shouting: "He went in my mouth!"

The clip also features the sarcastic caption: "That time we gave our dad a 'peaceful' send off," accompanied by some laughing face emojis.

The pair were left unable to contain themselves which must have certainly brightened up a deeply sombre moment.

Belle and Tyla's dad, Mark Halls, 47, died suddenly on 21 October 2020 and his daughters released his ashes a year on in his memory, behind Capstone Hill in North Devon.


NHS worker Belle said: "The video sums him up. He was brilliant, had a sense of humour, and he was so funny. He was a proper daddy bear.

"It was an emotional day. When the accident with the ashes happened it helped lighten the mood and we both walked away laughing.

"My sister Tyla is worried someone's going to see her as the girl that inhaled her dad. I think it's pretty funny."

Despite accidentally inhaling her dad's ashes, some people actually do ingest the powder. In fact, a 26-year-old woman from the US eats her late husband's remains.

Casie told TLC's My Strange Addiction that her 'world stopped turning' following her husband Sean's death and so, she decided to carry his ashes with him everywhere she went.

However, alongside spending time with the ashes, Casie admitted she's been eating some of the remains.

She told the TV show: "I guess with the transfer of his cremains some got into the cardboard box as well and that spilled out on my hands


"I didn't want to wipe him off, that's my husband I didn't want to wipe him away so I just licked him off my fingers.

"And here I am today almost two months later and I can't stop, I'm eating my husband."
