Sisters covered in their dad's ashes as their peaceful send off backfires

A video of two sisters scattering their dads ashes has gone viral, after a strong gust wind swept the ashes back into the girls' faces.

Belle Henry, 28, uploaded the video of her 22-year old sister, Tyla Halls, scattering her father's ashes behind Capstone Hill in North Devon.

The moment their dad's ashes were inhaled by Tyla was captured on camera as she shouts "he went in my mouth!" The video received many laughs and jokes in the comments.

The family lost their father Mark Halls at the age of 47, as he passed suddenly on the 21st of October 2020. Belle posted the TikTok to commemorate the one-year anniversary of their father's death.

"The video sums him up," says Belle. "He was brilliant, had a sense of humour, he was so funny. A proper daddy bear." 

Belle, an NHS worker, said the day they scattered their dads ashes was an "emotional day".

"When the accident with the ashes happened it helped lighten the mood and we both walked away laughing." 

Belle and her siblings, Tyla and Cohen Halls, grew up in Ilfracombe, Devon. One of the siblings' fondest memories was growing sunflowers with him as a child.

The TikTok was posted on the 23rd of October 2021 and has gained over 1.2m views and comments.

"I didn't expect the video to blow up. Within the first 3 hours there were 6 likes. I went to bed, woke up the next day and it was on nearly a million views."

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

Belle has been on TikTok for two years. She describes most of her videos as funny and says a few of them have also gone viral. She says that "luckily" no one has come up to her in the street and said anything about her videos.
