A woman drowned after being pulled under the water by a strong current while she was having photos taken in her wedding dress near waterfalls, Quebec police said on Friday.
Sgt. Ronald McInnis of the Quebec provincial police said her body was recovered about four hours after she disappeared under the water. Police had originally said she fell from a cliff and tumbled into the waterfall but later corrected that. The woman was married on June 9 and was having photos taken in her dress with the picturesque Dorwin Falls as a backdrop in Rawdon, north of Montreal.
While she was being photographed with her feet in the water the dress became saturated with water, leaving her unable to stay above water, police said. The photographer and a bystander tried to rescue her but were unable to because of the weight of the dress, McInnis said.
She slipped under the water and her body was later recovered in a basin about 100 feet (30 meters) away by a diver, he said. McInnis said family members at the location on Friday evening. He said two witnesses had to be hospitalized and treated for shock.
