NEW YORK (AP) — Family members say a newly married couple from New York drowned on their honeymoon at a Caribbean resort. Corporate attorney Mohammad Malik and his bride, Dr. Noor Shah, were swimming near their Turks and Caicos Islands resort on Oct. 28 when they were pulled under by strong riptides. The groom’s father, R. Maqbool Malik, tells Newsday that witnesses pulled the couple from the water and performed CPR, but they died at the scene. The pair had married four days earlier in East Meadow, New York. A spokesperson for the U.S. State Department confirmed the deaths.
