Woman in wedding dress drowns

A 30-year-old Canadian woman died after she fell into a river near Montreal while posing for wedding photos, officials said.

The woman, whose name was not reported, was standing in six to 12 inches of water in the Ouareau River while a photographer was taking her picture, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Friday.

Ronald McGinnis, spokesman for the Quebec provincial police, said the woman's dress became heavy after soaking up water and she asked for help getting out of the river.

The photographer and his assistant were unable to lift her out of the river and she was swept away by currents and taken under water, McGinnis said.
The woman's body was found about four hours later, officials said.

CBC said the woman, who was not named, had been married June 9, but wanted more pictures taken of her wearing her wedding dress. (UPI)

꽃다운 신부, 웨딩드레스 촬영했더니...

30세의 캐나다 여성이 웨딩드레스 야외 촬영 도중에 추락해 숨지는 사고가 발생했다.

해당 지역 언론에 따르면 이름이 밝혀지지 않은 이 여성은 몬트리올 근처에 있는 강으로 추락했고, 당시 사진사가 그녀의 웨딩드레스 모습을 촬영하고 있었다.

경찰에 따르면 강으로 떨어진 이후 드레스가 물에 젖어 무거워졌고 강에서 나오기 위해 도움을 청했지만 사진사와 조수는 그녀를 구하지 못해 급류에 휩쓸려 결국 익사하고 말았다. 시신은 몇 시간 뒤 발견되었다.

촬영을 했던 여성은 6월 9일 이미 결혼식을 올렸지만 웨딩드레스를 입은 모습을 사진으로 간직하고 싶어 야외촬영을 나섰다가 사고를 당했던 것으로 알려졌다.
