Moments After This Photo Was Taken, This Groom Jumped Into the River

Posted by Hatt Photography on Monday, September 25, 2017

Every bride dreams of her perfect groom and her perfect wedding day, but Canadian bride Brittany Cook recently got more than she bargained for in her new husband Clayton. Though their wedding photo session took an odd turn of events, groom Clayton’s actions during the photo session proved that Brittany’s groom is also the BEST MAN.

Their wedding day was a hot one, and their photographer Darren Hatt took them to a local park on the river for photos. There were kids and families everywhere, and Clayton and Brittany posed for photos by the river and on a picturesque bridge. As Brittany was getting solo portraits done by herself, Clayton noticed that the 3 kids who had been watching them were suddenly only TWO kids—and within a split second he realized the missing child was IN the river struggling.

Without a thought, Clayton Cook, in full wedding attire, jumped into the river and plucked the little boy out.

“His face was under water, and he was fighting,” Clayton told CTV news. Luckily, the water was easy for a big guy like Clayton to navigate, and he pulled the child to safety immediately.

Photographer Hatt captured the ordeal in photos that are going viral on Facebook, ensuring the Cooks will NEVER forget what a miraculous event took place on their wedding day.
