A couple assaulted by a crocodile got married days later in a Zimbabwean hospital where the bride was recovering after losing an arm.
Jamie Fox and Zenele Ndlovu were canoeing on the Zambezi, one of Africa’s longest rivers, when the attack happened on 30 April. Ndlovu lost her right arm and sustained harms to her left end. Five days later the couple see married in a infirmary chapel.
” In 1 week we led from collapse and agony to a truly amazing experience ,” Fox said.” We were glad we still had our lives and managed to keep our wedding appointment, although we had to do with a much smaller venue. The celebrations started ahead at the original venue but Zenele and I had to remain at research hospitals .”
He said the attack had been terrifying.” I was wailing, trying to save her. She was not complaining of tendernes when we managed to pull her out of the water, perhaps because of the surprise. We were hoping the doctors would save her arm but that was not to be .”
The couple had been dating for about 18 months.” I proposed in February. We are hoping to settle in the UK, so we are sorting out her visa and then we will think of the honeymoon ,” Fox said.
Ndlovu was discharged from the hospital on Monday.
