A shocking event has emerged from one wedding in Vietnam, with video footage circling on Vietnamese media. The festivities took a drastic turn when the groom was thrown by his friends in a joyful gesture, albeit one that ended with the groom colliding with the ground, unconscious and unresponsive. The incident almost progressed into a tragedy.

Recorded footage of the mishap revealed that amidst their photo shoot, the bride, groom, and close friends were all gathered under a floral arch. In high spirits, the group encircled the groom, before hoisting him into the air as a celebratory act. However, after elevating him a couple of times, their grip slipped, causing the groom to plummet heavily to the ground, reported Sanook.

Upon witnessing the unforeseen accident, the laughter ceased abruptly as the groom lay motionless on the wedding floor. This led everyone to rush to his aide, with one individual shouting out loud, imploring people to “Step back, give him some room to breathe, bring him water.” Fortunately, the groom managed to gradually rise to his feet, still looking considerably stunned and in pain but attempted to calm everyone by managing a smile.

The clip attracted immediate attention from netizens worldwide. Many expressed that viewing it was a heart-stopping experience while others highlighted the potential dangers of such frivolous play.

Others aimed their criticisms directly at the groom and his friends, stating, ‘The groom, his age, drinks that much, plus his friends are weird. Falling like that is really dangerous.’
