British couple Elizabeth Kerr and Simon O’Brien had been planning to marry in June. Then COVID-19 struck.
Both contracted the disease and were rushed to Milton Keynes University Hospital in the same ambulance when their oxygen levels fell dangerously low.
Ms Kerr and Mr O’Brien became so ill that medical staff scrambled to organise a wedding before it was too late.
When Mr O’Brien’s condition got even worse, it was decided he should be transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU).
Even that did not stop them: staff delayed his intubation just long enough for them to tie the knot.
“They told me that we wouldn’t be able to get married after all, because they were going to have to intubate Simon and put him under,” Ms Kerr recalled.
