Wedding Party Falls Into Lake


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., (UPI) — A Michigan bride whose entire wedding party plunged into a lake when a dock collapsed said the incident “makes for a good story.”

Eric and Maegan Walber said their wedding party gathered on the dock at the Bay Pointe Inn in Grand Rapids to take pictures after the ceremony Saturday and the dock began to wobble after about 30 seconds, reported Monday.

“I saw the thing starting to tilt, and I’m like, ‘Oh, yup, this is going to happen,'” Eric Walber told WOOD-TV, Grand Rapids. “We went right under.”

“Everyone was laughing,” he said. “It was one of those things that it just happens and you roll with it.”

Maegan Walber said the plunge made her wedding day all the more memorable.

“It makes for a good story,” she said. “We’ll be telling our grandkids.”
