When two hearts desire to be together for the rest of their lives nothing can stop and that's exactly how a story of two love birds went from sad to joyous because a lady decided nothing was going to stop her from marrying the one she loves.
A Zimbabwean lady who had been attacked by a crocodile days to her wedding has tied the knot at the hospital. The lady identified as Zaenele Ndlovu tied the knot with her British partner Jamie Fox at the hospital chapel.
Ndlovu who was a national tennis player was attacked while she was canoeing with Fox in the Zambezi river above Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The 25-year-old's right arm was lost in the attack and her left hand was bitten.
After the attack, her husband-to-be had come to her rescue and he applied a make-shift tourniquet to put pressure on the wood and avoid blood loss even though she had already lost so much.
A family friend described the incident. He said: "During the attack the crocodile gripped her arm and ripped it off while her partner made frantic efforts to save her. They are lucky to be alive though. The boats used in that activity are inflating and the crocodile attack their vessel and in the process deflated it before attacking her."
It was gathered that the lady was rushed to the hospital where she was operated on. The brave lady decided not to miss her wedding day despite her injuries and they ended up tying the knot at the hospital chapel.
Family and friends joined the couple as they celebrated their union. The bride was seen slaying in her white sleeveless dress and the groom rocked a black suit.
25-year-old Ndlovu would still be able to play tennis as she lost her right arm and it was discovered that she is left-handed.
According to DailyMail, crocodiles were recorded as the biggest killers out of all in the wild animals and creatures in Zimbabwe in 2017, and it was reported that 21 people suffered fatal attacks last year.
