Marriage is something you go into with a lot of prayers and not all these glamour we see today. It is sad that many don’t take such seriously until they become a victim of the intricacies. Sigh!
This bride’s dream of arriving at her wedding by helicopter ended in tragedy when it crashed just a mile from the venue of her wedding, where her groom was already waiting…
32yrs old Rosemere do Nascimento Silva had planned to surprise her fiancé Udirley Damasceno and 300 guests by swooping in to their reception in the outskirts of Sao Paulo in Brazil.
But in an horrendous twist of fate, the aircraft crashed en route to the venue, killing the bride-to-be, her brother, the pilot and a photographer who was six-months-pregnant.
Mr Damasceno was left waiting at the altar, unaware of what his fiancée was planning to do, or of the tragic consequences.
Police and air crash investigators are now trying to establish what caused the crash.
They are looking into reports that it might have hit a tree due to bad visibility with rain, fog, cloud.
“Brides have a dream and hers was to arrive by helicopter to her wedding without anyone knowing,” Carlos Eduardo Batista, one of the organisers told Brazilian media Globo.
The accident was discovered when he realised the helicopter did not arrive at a nearby football field.
He made a phone call which confirmed it had taken off as planned.
They were later told a plane had crashed nearby but at first thought it was an unconnected incident.
The distraught bridegroom was told the news at the altar by the pastor and was said to have gone into total shock. The journey should have taken just 5 minutes, but she didn’t make it.
Fire fighters rushed to the scene but nothing could be done to save the bride and others.
