Daughters' attempt to scatter father's ashes on a windy day goes wrong

The last laugh! Daughters’ attempt to scatter father’s ashes on a windy day goes hilariously wrong

  • Belle Henry, 28, and Tyla Halls, 22, took their father’s urn to Bristol Channel 
  • A sudden gust of wind just as Tyla released the ashes sent them back in her face
  • Their father, Mark Halls, died suddenly aged 47 on October 21 2020
  • Belle said the amusing video sums up her father who was ‘brilliant and so funny’ 

This is the moment two sisters ended up covered in their father’s ashes when they tried to scatter them into the sea on a gusty day.

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

But they were left giggling when a huge gust of wind caught the ashes as they threw them towards the water – sending them flying back in Tyla’s face.


Tyla Halls, 22, was emptying her father’s urn into the Bristol Channel, behind Capstone Hill in North Devon. A sudden gust of wind sent the ashes in the opposite direction, covering her in a cloud of her father’s remains

Footage shows her howling with laughter and shouting: ‘He went in my mouth!’

Mark Halls died suddenly aged 47 on October 21 2020 and his daughters released his ashes a year later 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.’

Belle, Tyla and brother Cohen Halls grew up in Ilfracombe, Devon.
