A wedding could have turned into a mourning in Indian state Uttar Pradesh after a groom fell in a well with his horse while he was on his way to the marriage venue. Fortunately, they both escaped injuries and were taken out of the well.
The incident occurred when the horse, carrying the groom, got scared by firecrackers being let off during the celebrations and fell into the well, taking the groom with it. They were circling the well as part of a wedding ritual.
Fortunately, they were both rescued without any injuries. Reports suggest that people were lowered into the well to fasten a rope around the horse. A video clip shot on a mobile phone shows the horse, still decked in wedding finery, being brought up from the well with the help of a loading machine. The wedding party breathed a sigh of relief after the groom was rescued, soon after, absolutely safe and sound.
