India, Am I Right?

So, speaking of dead bodies, this may be one of the most bizarre stories I have ever read. Apparently, an Indian couple were in the middle of their wedding when the bride dropped dead of a heart attack. What happened next was cray-cray.

In a series of unfortunate events, a groom married the sister of his bride after she collapsed and died earlier in the wedding ceremony.

For the record, that’s not the bride above… or the other bride.

The incident happened in Uttar Pradesh, India when a woman named Surabhi and man named Mangesh Kumar were tying the knot in a Hindu ceremony on May 27.

During the jaimala, the exchanging of garlands by the bride and the groom in an Indian wedding, Surabhi collapsed and a doctor was called to treat her after she suffered a heart attack.

After the doctor pronounced the bride dead, the families of the bride and groom agreed the bride’s younger sister, Nisha, would wed the groom.

Apparently the second wedding continued while the original bride’s body was in an adjoining room. Seriously India, what the hell?
