Damn that’s terrible…
Father Chokes To Death Hours After Walking His Daughter Down The Aisle At Wedding
A father choked to death at his daughter’s wedding reception just hours after walking her down the aisle, an inquest heard.
Jagan Babwah, 73, beamed with pride as he gave his daughter Camela away during her lavish wedding ceremony at a picturesque castle owned by Jools Holland.
But just two hours later the cabbie began choking on a piece of lamb in the post-wedding feast and guests desperately tried to save him with the Heimlich manoeuvre.
Despite their efforts Mr Babwah suffered a cardiac arrest and was later pronounced dead by paramedics on May 31 this year.
Camela bravely decided to continue the wedding in tribute to her much-loved father, which is what she believes he would have wanted.
The 160-guest reception and evening party continued – but Camela never heard her proud dad’s wedding speech.
One dead daddy don’t stop no wedding reception.
She revealed that the hardest point was when she had to open up her father’s wedding card the very next day.
“To be honest opening the card was the hardest part,” she said.
“I opened it the next day and he had given us some money towards our honeymoon.
“We were thinking of going to Mexico but we had to cancel it.
“Now I can’t put my wedding cards up because I have so many sympathy cards.
“For weeks after I felt like I didn’t want to celebrate. It just didn’t seem right.”
