  • A bride's special day turned sour when she tried to do a traditional Jewish dance with her husband.
  • The traditional dance involves being lifted in chairs, but she broke her foot and landed in the ER.
  • She told everyone, including her new husband, to continue partying without her.

A bride and groom who are not Jewish were convinced by their friends to participate in a traditional Jewish dance where the newlyweds are lifted in chairs. But the dance took a turn for the worse, with the bride taking a nasty tumble.

Fox5 anchors shared their thoughts about the bride's decision not to disrupt the party. Sarah said, "I feel like I would never say that. I would be so dramatic. I would tell my husband; 'you better carry me out of here'.

"Also, people couldn't care less if the newlyweds were there. They just wanted a good party. I would definitely make my husband go with me. I don't know who this woman is; she's a superhero."

Another referred back to the wedding vows the couple just took and said this was the best time to get practice on them. "You just got married like, you just took the vows, 'In sickness and in health' you better show at the ER, and your friends dropped me. They were so drunk they couldn't handle their liquor, and it was their idea, to begin with. Yeah, absolutely; I'm not walking in there without him."

The third anchor added that the wedding tradition is also middle eastern and that she and he husband also did it. However, she was held up by big guys. "If my wedding ends sooner than it was intended, I need my husband to come with me, and we make memories together. Don't leave me alone in an emergency room while you party with your friends. It's ridiculous. I get the notion of 'hey, go back, so the party doesn't end, but if this was a house party, it would make sense, but this was a wedding. He shouldn't have stayed behind."
