A shocking moment of a woman begging her husband for forgiveness after she allegedly stabbed him in the abdomen was caught on camera in Mexico. Cell phone footage shows 22-year-old Sonia Amairani Nunez kneeling on the pavement in front of her husband, 29-year-old Erick Omar Diaz, and pleading with him to not die after an apparent altercation that took place inside a motel in March 10.
The Daily Mail reported that the apologetic woman cried out at one point, "forgive me my love, please don’t die", while her severely wounded husband was lying on the ground, fighting to stay alive. A group of people could be seen in the video outside Las Cascadas motel in Iguala, which is a city in Guerrero, on the Mexican Pacific coast.
The group of people who were filming the whole incident spotted Nunez trying to help Diaz, who was stumbling, before they both crashed to the ground. The woman could be heard in the viral video saying: "He hit me. He tried to kill me... tell them the truth."
As Diaz struggled to hold on to his wife, he countered her accusation and asked for help from the onlookers, telling them Nunez wanted to kill him. Nunez replied by saying: "I am not going to kill you because I love you. I’d never do that to you but you have no idea what you did to me, OK."
A furious but visibly in pain Diaz argued back: "God is really a witness." An ambulance arrived from the Mexican Red Cross almost an hour after Diaz had been stabbed. A police officer who had arrived on the scene first refused to take the man to the hospital because he claimed his vehicle did not have enough fuel to make the trip.
The officer can be seen walking away after he pulls out his phone and records the couple for a few minutes instead of trying to help the victim. For some time in the footage, Nunez can be seen unwilling to leave her wounded husband's side while she begs him to stay alive as the paramedics constantly try to get her to move away.

The 12-minute footage went viral on Facebook but has since been removed from the social media site. The video also briefly shows how deep the man's wound is and his intestines were reportedly almost completely visible at one point. Diaz was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery and is now in a stable condition.
According to La Verdad, the couple has a child together. Local reports said the woman had gone to visit her husband, who worked at a bar in the area, and they decided to go to a motel after having a few drinks. Nunez was arrested after the incident and at around 8 p.m. the same day, a judge issued conditional freedom to her as a precautionary measure. She must now appear before the court every 15 days for the crime she committed and has been ordered to stay away from her husband until formal charges are filed against her.
