Rio de Janeiro - Media reports say a Brazilian bridegroom bled to death at his wedding reception when he tripped and fell on an empty glass of beer.

The G1 news website says the freak accident occurred early on Monday morning some six hours after navy sergeant Fabio Jefferson dos Santos Maciel and Geise Guimaraes tied the knot.

Citing wedding guests, G1 says Maciel was dancing with one of the bridesmaids when he lost his balance and fell to the ground shattering the glass he was carrying in his left pants pocket.

G1 says a piece of glass severed his femoral vein, causing a massive loss of blood.

He died shortly after being rushed to a nearby hospital.

    If he fell on a glass of beer he would have been ok but he fell on a beer glass.

      No, an EMPTY glass of beer. I'm trying to figure that one out, but my brain gets stuck in a rut time and again...

    Tragic story! They didn't even spend a wedding night together.
