(Scroll down for video) A wedding party ended with a splash when most of the party guests fell into a lake, according to video uploaded to the internet.
A newlywed couple in Georgia along with the wedding party guests said they had a sense of humor about falling into the lake during a photo session after the wedding ceremony.
Frank and Tricia Fearon said they were posing with their 29 bridesmaids and groomsmen at a lake after their wedding ceremony, when the structure collapsed and they all fell into Lake Lanier.
“The entire wedding party turned 90 degrees and just dumped all into the lake, suits, dresses and everything else,” Frank Fearon said.
Tricia Fearon said the party had initially been considered lucky by dodging a 60 percent chance of rain.
“It seemed like magic because it did not rain”, she said. “In the end though it didn’t matter because we were all thrown into the lake anyway,” she also said.
The plunge was captured on video by wedding videographer and posted on YouTube.
The couple said that one woman suffered a broken humerus and a dislocated shoulder. The rest of the group escaped with minor injuries, they said.
The newlyweds said they do not consider their wedding ruined because of the incident.
“Nobody complained even though a lot of iPhones were damaged,” Frank Fearon said. “Everyone laughed it off, dried themselves and went on to dance all night,” he said.
“A lot of people are laughing about the incident as the video went viral on the internet, but for the injured woman, it is no laughing matter. People should be more careful where they pose for pictures and videos. Photographers need to make sure that the setting is safe,” Lillie Russell, 20, of Atlanta, Georgia told YourJewishNews.com after watching the video.
“This was not a ruined wedding,” Tricia Fearon said. “A million people came to us and told us it was the best wedding they had ever seen,” she said.
“It was fun,” she said. “We had a lot of fun,” she added.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
