A Canadian couple got some unexpected and unforgettable wedding photos when the groom jumped into a river to save a little boy, the BBC reports. Clayton and Brittany Cook were posing on a bridge in an Ontario park when they saw the boy go in the water. The photographer says he appeared to have been pushed in by a friend. Clayton Cook quickly jumped in the water, suit and all. "His face was underwater and he was fighting, like he was really fighting," Cook tells CTV News; Cook was able to pull him out and he appeared to be OK. The photographer, Darren Hatt, kept shooting the whole time; you can see the photos on his Facebook page. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
