Groom dies in freak champagne flute accident

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.
