Couple marries in hospital after groom's heart attack

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH, Pa. (WHDH) - A Pittsburgh couple was determined not to let anything get in the way of their happily ever after. Not even a medical emergency.

When the groom suffered a heart failure before they exchanged their vows, they decided to go ahead with the wedding but do it in the hospital.

Mary Alice and Robert Adams’ love story is unique.

“He found me on Facebook,” she said.

The couple didn't start dating until a year and a half ago. Their wedding was Friday.

“At our age I didn't want anything real fancy,” Mary Alice said.

But Mary Alice could tell something was wrong with her groom.

“I got in the car. I thought it was anxieties and next thing I know I was having a medical problem,” Robert said.

The groom was having heart problems so ems. Crews responded to the wedding.

“He wanted it to continue. And I explained to him he needed to get up to the hospital to be seen,” Rob Leuthold, an EMT, said.

Their quick action kept Robert alive until they got to the. Rooms. Once there nurses made Mary Alice a bouquet. The wedding was back on.

“I’m glad. I'm glad he is ok. It will be memorable for the rest of my life. And his I hope,” the bride said.

The couple hopes to honey moon in Las Vegas once Robert is released from the hospital.
