Zimbabwe Couple Weds Days After Crocodile Bites Off Bride’s Arm

A couple attacked by a crocodile wedded days later in a Zimbabwean hospital, where the bride was recovering after losing an arm.

Zanele Ndlovu, a former national tennis player, married Jamie Fox on Saturday in a chapel at Bulawayo’s Mater Dei hospital where she was treated for her injuries, reports the Sunday News.

“This has never happened before and it is quite exciting. You can tell people are all excited about this,” a hospital staffer told the paper.

 

 

Ndlovu and Fox were in an inflatable boat in the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls when they were attacked by the crocodile last week.

“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 though,” an unnamed family member told the paper.

Out of all animals, crocodiles were behind the biggest number of fatal attacks on humans in Zimbabwe last year, with 21 killed by the reptiles between January and December, according to a Chronicle report.

 

A short video clip from the ceremony shows the moment the groom kisses the bride.
