article imageVideo: Wedding party falls into lake after dock collapses

By David Silverberg     Jun 26, 2012 in Odd News
It started off as an impressive photo shoot, an entire bridal party lining up on a picturesqure dock in Shelbyville, Michigan. But then the dock collapsed and all the finely-dressed men and women had to swim to safety.
Eric and Maegan Walber's marriage got off to a wet start after their bridal party fell into the water during a photoshoot at Bay Pointe Inn on Gun Lake in Shelbyville, Michigan.
A video shows the guys and gals lining up on the dock, awaiting a photoshoot and then the dock broke and they were suddenly submerged in neck-high water.
The groom didn't get too upset about the accident. "Everyone was laughing. It was one of those things that it just happens and you roll with it," Eric said.
Also, media reports noted diners at the restaurant gave the wedding party a standing ovation after they got out of the water.
'It makes for a good story," the bride noted. "We'll be telling our grandkids."
The video has gone viral, attracting more than 78,000 views within two days of being uploaded to YouTube.
There was some collateral damage to the incident, apparently. A wedding guest who fell into the water announced in the video, "Hey, guess whose phone doesn't work anymore!"
