The couple fell from the rocky edge of a cliff in Cabo da Raca over the weekend. They would have had to cross a safety barrier in order to reach the cliff edge, the Polish Radio reported.
Their young children, ages 5 and 6, were with them and witnessed the accident. They are currently under psychiatric care, according to Polish Radio.
A Spanish couple that was also at the location called emergency crews and rescuers tried to recover the bodies using a helicopter, but had to give up because of the rising tide. The bodies were recovered on Monday, according to Polish Radio.
