A couple had a more exciting wedding than they signed up for in Chhattisgarh capital Raipur when an elevated platform, complete with fireworks, collapsed during one of the ceremonies on Saturday.
Fortunately, the couple suffered only minor injuries in the incident and the rituals continued after 30 minutes.
In a video that went viral on social media, the bride and the groom were seen standing on the platform that was elevating from the stage. Minutes later, the harness snapped, tossing the two on the stage.
The event management company that planned the programme apologised for the incident.
An employee of the firm said that the accident occurred during the 'Sangeet' ceremony due to some "technical issues".
"No one suffered injuries in the incident. The bride and the groom are safe," he claimed, adding that the company will ensure such incidents don't occur again in the future.
