Woman Gets Married Days After Her Arm Is Bitten Off In Crocodile Attack
A former national tennis player, Zanele Ndlovu who had her arm bitten off in a crocodile attack that almost made her loose her life got married in an emotional ceremony just days later.
Naija News learnt that the British bridegroom Jamie Fox and his bride-to-be were canoeing in the Zambezi river above the Victoria Falls when the giant beast struck from below.
A family friend said: “During the attack the crocodile gripped her arm and ripped it off while her partner made frantic efforts to save her. They are lucky to be alive.“The boats used in that activity are inflated and the crocodile attacked their vessel and in the process deflated it before attacking her.”
Naija News also learnt that a make-shift tourniquet was applied and she was rushed to hospital where surgeons managed to save her life but she lost most of her arm.
In spite of the near-death experience, the couple tied the knot days later in an emotional ceremony.
Zanele was determined not to shift her wedding date, so she was allowed to use the hospital chapel to get married. They got married on Sunday at the Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
It is believed the couple had gone to the Victoria Falls to get married but the crocodile attack meant a drastic change of venue was needed.The bride can be seen in her white sleeveless wedding dress walking into church with her stump heavily bandaged, holding pink roses in her left hand.
