Bride-to-be plunges into waterfall

2012-08-25 09:15

Rawdon - A bride-to-be fell to her death while getting her wedding pictures taken, tumbling down from a cliff into a waterfall while she was wearing her wedding dress, police said on Friday.

Sergeant Ronald McInnis of the Quebec provincial police said her body was recovered about four hours after she slipped from a rock and fell into Dorwin Falls in Rawdon, north of Montreal. She had chosen the site as the backdrop for her wedding pictures.

McInnis said family members and her fiancé were on location Friday evening. McInnis said two witnesses had to be hospitalised and treated for shock.

The woman was on the verge of getting married "within days", police said.

McInnis described the site as being quite elevated and rocky, with water "violently" rushing below.

    I'm sorry, but I have to point out the following..." into Dorwin Falls in Rawdon, north of Montreal. She had chosen the site as the backdrop for...". Dorwin or Darwin (awards), and did they really have to use the word 'backdrop' here? :-D

    get the story correct RAWDON, Que. - A recently married bride wanted to be photographed one more time in her wedding dress. The photo shoot on Friday wound up killing her. A Montreal-area woman, married just under three months ago, dipped her toes into a river northeast of the city near the town of Rawdon. The water wasn't particularly deep or turbulent. But it began to seep into the dress, making it heavy. Eventually, the 30-year-old woman slipped from the rocks and was carried away by the Ouareau River. http://www.news24.com/World/News/Bride-to-be-plunges-into-waterfall-20120825
