An amazing story: a woman paralyzed at an accident during her bachelorrette party marries a year later
Last May, during a poolside horseplay at her bachelorette party, Rachelle Friedman was pushed in the shallow end of the pool by one of her bridesmaids. She told ABC News that she knew immediately something was wrong. The 25-year-old said, "I instantly just stopped moving" and told her friends it wasn't a joke and they should call 911.
The bride-to-be was paralyzed from the waist down with the wedding one month away. The couple postponed the wedding, but their commitment to each other remained strong. Rachelle and her 28 year old boyfriend, Chris Chapman, will finally exchange vows this upcoming Friday and then, honeymoon in Fiji.
The bride has refused to name the woman who pushed her and has said that she was and still is one of her best friends and is attending the wedding.
