This car crash almost destroyed one couple’s wedding day, but…
On 18 October 2012, Chad was driving on a road in South Carolina when he lost control of his vehicle and flipped the car upside down. Chad, a groom who was getting married the very next day, managed to get out of the car before it completely filled with water. He then walked the 1.5 mile (2.4km) back to his house thinking about his bride, Holly, the whole way home. Once home, he called his mother to take him to the hospital where the doctor found that he had fractured his L1 vertebrae and conveyed the news that he was not going to be able to attend his wedding the following day. To this Chad responded: “I’m sorry, that’s not an option. I’m getting married tomorrow.” What a touching example of the power of love.
