Bride makes plane crash by tossing bouquet


In a twist on the traditional throwing of the bouquet, a couple hired a small aeroplane to fly past their guests at Montioni park in Suvereto, near Livorno in western Tuscany, and drop the bride's bouquet to a line of women standing below, according to a report in Corriere della Sera.

But as the plane flew over the crowd on Saturday, the flowers were sucked back into the engine, causing it to catch fire and explode.

The small plane plunged into a field next to a hostel below. One passenger on the plane was seriously injured, but the pilot, Luciano Nannelli, and about 50 people who had been in the hostel escaped unscathed.

Isidoro Pensieri, the 44-year-old passenger on the aeroplane, was responsible for throwing the wedding bouquet. But after she threw it, the bunch of flowers was apparently sucked into one of the engines.

Miss Pensieri suffered "facial and cranial trauma" and multiple fractures to both legs. She was being treated in hospital in Pisa.

This seems like something that could have been predicted before the arrangements were made. Luckily everyone is alive, and hopefully the bride's legs will fully heal.
