A New Jersey bride found her knight in shining armor on her wedding day — but he wasn’t the groom.
The bride was riding in a limo with her wedding party in Bogota around 6 p.m. Saturday when the area’s flash flooding suddenly trapped them at River Road and Elm Avenue, NJ.com said .
The group frantically called the local police department for help, and cops sent out two officers in a military-grade Humvee to rescue them.
Bogota Officer Michael Laferrera climbed out of the Humvee and stood on the roof of the police vehicle as the bride — in her wedding dress and white shoes — scampered from the limo through its sunroof. The bride was then helped by the cop to the roof of the Humvee and into the police vehicle.
The bride stayed dry throughout her ordeal, the department proudly boasted.
“Unfortunately, due to the quickly rising flood waters, this bride, her new husband and wedding party friends, got a rough start on things,” the Bogota Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.
“The fortunate thing is, we were able to help them through their first rough patch. Obviously their day has not gone as planned, so let’s congratulate them on their wedding and give them best wishes for a lifetime of love and adventure, starting now!”
