While posing for photos at their wedding photo shoot, the groom got to be a hero on his wedding day by saving a little boy who was struggling to swim. Clayton and Brittany Cook were taking pictures at a park in Ontario, Canada after they tied the knot and they had a group of kids following them around.
The bride was having some solo snaps taken when the groom noticed one of kids who had been following them was missing. He spotted the other kids looking down into a pond and when he went to check on them, he saw that one little boy was drowning. So he hopped down and pulled him out of the water.
Their wedding photographer, Darren Hatt captured the whole scene and posted photos of the incident to his Facebook page. The new Mrs. Cook says they didn’t think much of the rescue at first, but later it sunk in. “Now it’s hitting us more that if we weren’t in the right place at the right time,” she says, “things may have done differently and perhaps even tragically.”
