For the first time ever, the fiance of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry is speaking out about the freak accident that ended in his death last month.
Loleini Tonga says, "He jumped. He jumped from the back of the car." Tonga says she was arguing with her fiance just three months before they were to be married. During the fight, he leaped off the back of a moving pickup truck she was driving.
Horrified onlookers called 911.
First Caller: "I'm driving behind a yellow truck, it's got a black man on it with no shirt on and he's beating on the back of this truck window, and the truck is driving. I don't know if he's trying to break in it or something, it just looks crazy. It's a girl driving it."
Second Caller: "I'm on Oakdale road. I just pulled up and there's a man in the road. He looks dead. There's no movement."
Loleini said, "I think he thought maybe he was going to land. Right? I wasn't going fast. Maybe he was scared cause he saw someone calling the police."
The fight reportedly broke out because Henry thought she was behaving like a Bridezilla in preparing for the wedding. On her Myspace page you can see she was planning an over the top wedding, with 15 bridesmaids and 4 maids of honor! Henry was reportedly furious when he heard how much she was spending. She spoke about that horrible night on ESPN's Outside The Lines.
Loleini continued, "I have no idea what was going through his mind but as far as him wanting to end his life, no. He had too much going for him."
