NYPost A couple attacked by a crocodile wedded days later in a Zimbabwean hospital, where the bride was recovering after losing an arm. “In one week we went from shock and agony to a truly amazing experience,” 27-year-old Jamie Fox told the Associated Press on Monday. Fox and his then-fiancée, Zenele Ndlovu, were canoeing on the Zambezi, one of Africa’s longest rivers, when a crocodile attacked them on April 30. Zenele lost her right arm and suffered injuries to her left hand. Five days later, they married in a hospital chapel. “We were glad we still had our lives and managed to keep our wedding date, although we had to do with a much smaller venue. The celebrations went ahead at the original venue but Zenele and I had to remain at the hospital,” Fox said. He described the wedding as “incredible.” Victoria Falls Guide, a travel website, describes canoeing on the Zambezi above the Victoria Falls as “the perfect activity for those who not only want to see the abundant bird and animal life but also want to experience the peace, tranquility and beauty of the Zambezi River.” For the couple, the experience turned terrifying. “I was shouting, trying to save her. She was not complaining of pain when we managed to pull her out of the water, maybe because of the shock. We were hoping the doctors would save her arm but that was not to be,” said Fox, adding that the couple had dated for about 18 months. “I proposed in February. We are hoping to settle in the U.K. so we are sorting out her visa and then we will think of the honeymoon,” he said. Zenele was discharged from the hospital Monday.
In Africa, “Happily Ever After” nearly turned deadly for an engaged couple, when they were attacked by a crocodile on a canoeing trip in the Zambezi river just days before their wedding. The bride-to-be lost her right arm in the vicious attack, and suffered severe injuries to her left hand while fighting off the beast, which nearly killed her just days before her wedding. However, this couple proved that love can overcome a crocodile attack, they were married just days later as soon as the blushing bride was released from the hospital. The Zambezi is am incredibly dangerous river, it is one of the only rivers in the world where crocodiles can be found swimming side-by-side with hippopotamuses as well as deadly bull sharks, so I would not recommend a honeymoon down the river in canoes to any newlyweds.
