Bride saves woman's life, ruins gown

An Australian bride hitched up her wedding dress and leapt from a jetty into the sea to save a woman spotted floating face down in the water, Adelaide's Advertiser newspaper reported Monday. The wedding party was having photographs taken at dusk Saturday on Glenelg jetty when someone spotted the 55-year-old woman bobbing in the water.

The bride, a trained nurse, managed to get the victim breathing again before medics arrived. The injured woman was taken to hospital with spinal injuries sustained in the fall from the jetty.

Shane Daw, a spokesman for Surf Life Saving South Australia, said members of the wedding party worked on the woman for about five minutes before she regained consciousness.

'They did a fantastic job,' he said.

What a story - I'm glad to know that all brides aren't plastic surgery-obsessed loons. At least they're not that way in Australia.
