ERIE, Pa. (AP) — A love-sick Pennsylvania couple ended up getting hitched in a hospital chapel after the groom tumbled down a set of stairs on their wedding day.
The Erie Times-News reports Derek and Cassy McBride were married Saturday at Saint Vincent Health Center because Derek took the wrong kind of plunge a few hours earlier.
The wedding appeared doomed when tests showed Derek McBride had three broken ribs and a punctured, collapsed lung.
But family and Saint Vincent nurses stepped up, decorating the chapel with medical glove balloons and bows made of gauze. Guests were told the beach wedding was scrapped.
Cassy McBride, nee Messenger, wore her gown. Derek had one too — a medical one, under his tuxedo.
Derek McBride hopes to be released soon.
