Via the Daily Mail:
A teenager and his secret girlfriend died after he fell into a 20ft-deep canal lock and she jumped in to rescue him, friends of the couple said last night.
Schoolgirl Sara Rylance, 17, was trying to ‘save the one she loved’, 18-year-old Fayz Uddin.
Mr Uddin, a Muslim of Bangladeshi origin, had not told his parents about his relationship with Sara, his best friend said.
The couple are thought to have been with a small group of teenagers who were celebrating Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, in Smethwick, West Midlands, on Wednesday evening.
