EMT Bride Rushes To The Scene Of A Car Crash On Her Wedding Day

A Tennessee paramedic is being hailed as a hero after she rushed to the scene of a car crash involving her own family — on her wedding day.

People reports that Sarah Ray and her husband Paul, also an EMT, had just said their vows and were en route to their wedding reception on October 3 when they got word that Ray's father and grandparents had been involved in a car accident just two miles away from the church.

I would like to believe just about anybody in the medical field would have done the same, especially for family...dressed up or not. I'm just very thankful everyone was okay. We are proud of our job and proud to be a part of Montgomery County EMS."

We suspect there were some extra-special toasts when the family finally arrived at the reception.
