Bride die of heart attack at her wedding in India – so her SISTER marries the groom instead after families made ‘tough call’ to carry on with the fest

Bride Surbhi suffered a fatal heart attack during the ceremony in Uttar Pradesh
A doctor was called to the scene but was unable to save the woman
The families agreed to continue the ceremony by replacing bride with her sister
A bride collapsed and died at her own wedding in India – only for her sister to then marry the groom at the same ceremony when the family decided to carry on with the festivities.

The bride, named as Surbhi, suffered a heart attack at the ceremony in Etawah city, Uttar Pradesh, after exchanging garlands with husband-to-be Manjesh Kumar as part of Hindu wedding tradition.

A doctor from the local village was called to the scene but was unable to save her.

But rather than call a halt to proceedings, families of both parties agreed to continue with the wedding ceremony by replacing the bride with her sister, Nisha. Surbhi’s body was kept in a separate room while the festivities took place and she was later cremated.

One of Surbhi’s uncles, Ajab Singh, told MailOnline it was a ‘tough call’ for the family to carry on with the wedding.

Surbhi’s brother Saurabh added: ‘It’s hard to believe a dead body was in the other room — and a bride was being prepared in next one.’

‘We did not know what to do in the situation,’ he said in separate comments to news agency IANS.
