Weddings are, more often than not, an expression of perpetual love between two people. Occasionally, love goes beyond just the couple. While two newlyweds were hosting a zero-waste reception, another two postponed their special day to help hurricane victims. Just last weekend, a Canadian groom — suit and all — rescued a little boy drowning in a nearby river.
“For several minutes these kids were following us, and I was just keeping an eye on them because they were standing close to the water,” [said groom Clayton Cook] “Then while Brittany was getting her solo shots taken I realized only two were standing on the rock ledge. I saw the boy in the water struggling to keep his head up. That’s when I jumped down.”
Way to be a well-dressed hero. The Cooks’ wedding photographer captured the valorous moment and the snapshot has, of course, gone viral.
“We’d like to think most people would probably make the same choice,” [said Brittany.]
“That’s Clay to me… It’s something he would just instinctively do.”
Perhaps Clayton’s quick thinking and selfless spirit is the reason Brittany is head-over-heels for her groom.
