A Brazilian couple’s dream wedding shattered as the day turned out a nightmare after the 30-year-old pregnant bride suffered a stroke on her way to the ceremony. Jéssica Victor Guedes was pronounced brain dead shortly after arriving at a nearby hospital.
It is reported that Guedes who was six months pregnant with her first child, fell ill inside a limo Saturday night as her fiancé and numerous guests waited for her at a Catholic church in São Paulo for the wedding ceremony.
At first, her family thought she was suffering from anxiety due to wedding nerves after she complained of feeling dizzy with pains in her neck. Because of this, the attendants were running late and they were unaware the victim was suffering from the pre-eclampsia which would become the reason for her tragic demise.
The groom, former firefighter Flavio Gonçalvez, reportedly rushed to his bride’s side and started first aid before emergency personnel arrived, but it was too late. Doctors performed an emergency C-Section on Guedes when she arrived at the hospital, and doctors had saved the baby with an early delivery. Jessica was pronounced dead shortly after.
Baby Sophia, who was born prematurely, is expected to remain at the hospital for about three months. God didn’t do complete injustice with them and blessed the family with a girl child. The family should look on the bright side and move forward with the newcomer.
