by Mikayla

A couple from Kitchener, Canada, were enjoying a beautiful day together with their families and friends, taking beautiful photos together, and enjoying the day of their wedding. All of a sudden, the groom, Clayton Cook, fled from being in front of the camera and jumped into a nearby river. Everyone was startled by his actions, but before anyone could react he was already in and out of the water, clutching a small boy in his arms. Cook had noticed a boy struggling to stay above water, and without hesitation, saved him. 

In an interview with CTV, he said: "His face was underwater and he was fighting, like he was really fighting." The incident was captured on camera by their fast-acting photographer from Hatt Photography.
