Chilling last post from Brit killed in tsunami describes ‘eerie silence’

The final Instagram post of the British woman who was swept away during the Tongan tsunami over the weekend has been revealed.

Angela Glover, from Brighton, died after an undersea volcano erupted near the Pacific nation on Saturday, sending large tsunami waves crashing across the shore – her body was found by her husband James earlier today

Her brother, Nick Eleini, said the 50-year-old died while trying to save her dogs.

Reading out a statement, he told Sky News: “I understand that this terrible accident came about as they tried to rescue their dogs.

“As you can imagine, her family is devastated. And we respectfully request that we are given privacy to grieve.”

And one of Mrs Glover's last actions was to post about the volcano which caused the tsunami on social media over the weekend.

Posting a picture of the sunset in the area, after the volcano exploded, she wrote on Instagram: “I’m not kidding you, this is the sunset today after the volcano exploded last night.

“We’ve been under tsunami warnings today, everything’s fine, a few swells, a few eerie silences, a wind or two, then silence.

“Sudden stillness, electric storms – everything looked like I was watching thru an Instagram filter.”

Since the news broke of her disappearance – and subsequent body discovery – comments on the post from friends and family have flooded in.

Alana Teasdale wrote: “Rest peacefully gorgeous girl.”

And Charlotte Adorjan posted: “Oh Angela, rest easy.

“I'm so sorry – this is devastating.”

One of her most recent posts pictures her with a friend from Manchester called Olivia, who was supposed to return to the UK after spending two years teaching on the island.

She posted that flights were cancelled due to Covid and the volcano.

Ms Glover founded the charity Tonga Animal Welfare Society, and was known to be a huge lover of animals.

Her brother, Mr Eleini said: “The uglier the dog the more she loved it.

“She was beautiful.

“She was absolutely a ray of sunshine.

“She would walk into a room and just lighten a room up.”
