A woman’s husband who was driving her home from work during Storm Eunice was killed by a falling tree has expressed his sorrow over her passing. Four individuals, including 37-year-old Juliana Da Silva Queiroz Murilo, died on Friday as high winds pounded the UK and Ireland. After Stephen Matthews, 68, was murdered in Merseyside when debris hit the vehicle he was riding in, the grandfather’s family has also paid tribute to him. Just after 4 o’clock in the afternoon, a tree fell on Ms. Murilo and her husband Carlos as they were traveling in a Honda. Carlos is a taxi driver. At the scene, she was pronounced deceased. Her 39-year-old husband was injured while being cut from the automobile but was not in danger of dying. He was rushed to the hospital.

“There was an instantaneous crash, and the tree shattered the roof. The majority of it hit my wife. I was awake yet disoriented. A woman approached me, chatted to me, and grasped my hand. I was extricated from the debris and driven to an ambulance. My wife was dead, they informed me. I’m devastated. The scene is stuck in my head. Since I passed away as well, we were almost one. He learned that his wife had passed away in the ambulance. After 15 years of marriage, Mr. Murilo stated that he and his wife, who are both from Brazil, were only five minutes away from their house when the catastrophe occurred. He claimed that his wife was enthusiastic about the future and pursuing a career as a teacher.

“I always drive her home because I wanted to make sure she was secure, especially with the strong gusts. I find it hard to comprehend how what transpired could have occurred. “We were quite near. Because she was terrified, she had never learned to swim, but I helped her last year, and we celebrated by taking a trip to Menorca to go swimming in the water. I so adored her that I referred to her as “my little fish.” “I can’t believe she’s gone,” he continued. In the ambulance, I asked them, and they replied. My life has become chaotic. Friends and family in the Brazilian and Portuguese community are helping the Christian couple, who routinely attended church together.

Juliana Murilo, Ms. Murilo’s sister-in-law, also expressed gratitude in a post on Facebook, saying: “The tears stream down my face and my heart aches every time I remember everything we’ve been through together. “The hopelessness of not being able to save you and prevent your demise. You still have a lot of life to live and a lot of dreams to fulfill.
