Tragedy befell a Brazilian family Thursday evening when a newlywed woman died having sex with her husband on the night of her wedding. They had just married during a ceremony at the husband’s farm earlier in the day, according to The Sun.
The unnamed bride started to feel unwell during sex at their home in the city of Ibirite in Brazil while consummating her marriage with her 29-year-old new husband before she then collapsed.
The woman’s husband called his neighbor for help and ordered a taxi to take his wife to hospital but its driver refused, according to O Tempo.
A second taxi was called, but the driver also refused to help and said the husband needed to call the emergency services instead.
It was gathered that when the paramedics finally arrived, they found the woman gasping for breath and confirmed she had suffered a heart attack. Sadly, she reportedly died on the way to the hospital.
While the distraught husband alleged that it took an hour for the ambulance to arrive at their home, the emergency services said the first ambulance was cancelled and then the second arrived within 21 minutes.
The bride’s death has been ruled as accidental as her body showed no signs of foul play or violence. A neighbor reportedly told the police she didn’t hear any screams or noises before the woman died.
Post-mortem examination found the woman had a history of bronchitis. The distraught man who spoke to newsmen, said he wasn’t sure if he could continue living in the same Brazilian city following his wife’s death.
