Tragic story..getting some photos done..sheesh..RIP
Police have confirmed the death of a 30-year-old woman who fell into
the Ouareau River, about 75 kilometres north of Montreal, while having
her wedding photos taken.
According to Ronald McGinnis, spokesman for the Quebec provincial
police, the woman was standing in about 15 to 30 centimetres of water
while a photographer was taking her picture.
McGinnis said her dress got heavy from soaking up water and the woman asked for help getting out of the river.
The photographer and his assistant were unable to lift her out.
That's when the woman was swept away by harsh currents and taken under
water. Quebec provincial police found her nearly four hours after the
incident, at around 6 p.m. ET, with the help of a local diver who found
her in a deep water basin.
The woman, from the city of Laval north of Montreal, had been married
June 9 but had wanted more photos of herself in her wedding dress at
Authorities say the current is very strong, leaving little chance of survival.
