CLEVELAND - Un homme de l'Ohio en phase terminale est arrivé au mariage de sa fille en ambulance et l'a conduite vers l'autel... sur une civière.

Les invités ont applaudi et crié de joie quand Scott Nagy est arrivé au mariage de sa fille Sarah, samedi, à l'église évangélique luthérienne de Strongsville, rapporte un journal local.

Un équipe volontaire de professionnels médicaux a aidé M. Nagy à escorter la future mariée de 24 ans, tandis que son prétendant, Angelo Salvatore, et le révérend Chuck Knerem attendaient leur arrivée.

L'homme de 56 ans a raconté qu'il avait promis à sa fille en mars qu'il la conduirait vers l'autel lors de son mariage.

M. Nagy souffre d'un cancer de l'urètre et a subi des traitements de chimiothérapie. Il est hospitalisé depuis le mois d'août.

Les médecins ne savaient pas s'il survivrait jusqu'au mariage de Sarah, initialement prévu l'année prochaine. Mais avec les fils des moniteurs et un tube endotrachéal cachés sous sa chemise, il a accompagné sa fille dans l'allée centrale de l'église, embrassant au passage l'un de ses petits-fils qui portait les alliances et faisant le signe de la victoire.

Sarah a raconté que depuis son plus jeune âge, elle a toujours souhaité que son père l'escorte vers l'autel quand elle se marierait. Elle a précisé que son fiancé lui avait promis que son voeu serait exaucé.

Après la cérémonie, elle a éclaté en sanglots et a dit à son père qu'elle l'aimait.

«Nous l'avons fait», lui a dit son père, en lui conseillant de ne pas pleurer pour ne pas gâcher son maquillage.
