Guest killed by wedding tent pole
ISLE LA MOTTE, Vt. (AP) -- A sudden gust of wind uprooted a tent at a wedding moments after the couple recited their vows, killing one guest and injuring more than a dozen others.
Tent poles, stakes and broken glass and china went flying through the air Saturday at the wedding of Jason and Carrie Guyette as a storm moved in.
The bridegroom's step-grandmother was killed by a pole. Her name was not released.
"There was this 'whoosh,"' said Catherine LaBrecque, the bride's grandmother. "The tent went airborne. Everyone was screaming and then the next thing you know, people were on the ground and there was blood on all these people."
