Bride's bouquet brings down plane
The wedding tradition of throwing a bride's bouquet for luck proved to be unlucky at one Italian wedding when the bride's bouquet caused a plane to explode and crash in Montioni Park in Suvereto, Tuscany.
According to a report by the BBC, the bride and groom hired a small plane to fly over the wedding reception and throw the bouquet to the female guests. But instead of falling to the ground, the bouquet was sucked into the plane's engine, causing it to catch fire and explode, the story said. Then the plane crashed into a hostel, where about 50 people escaped unharmed, as did the pilot.
Isidoro Pensieri, 44, who had the job of throwing the bouquet from the plane, was reportedly the only person hurt in the incident. She suffered fractures and a head injury and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Grosseto, the story said.
