Groom dies in freak champagne flute accidentPosted: November 21, 2012
Yeah, you read that right. I’m all for stories about freak accidents but this one takes the (wedding) cake.
A groom in Rio de Janeiro died in a horrific accident just hours after tying the knot. At their beach-side reception, the groom was dancing with a young bridesmaid when he tripped and fell forward. For some reason he had an empty champagne flute in his pocket (uhhh…??) which shattered when he fell. A shard of glass cut his femoral vein and despite a swift call to an ambulance, the groom died of blood loss on the way to the hospital.
Lesson learned – do not dance with glass in pocket.
