Groom dives into water in wedding suit, to rescue boy from drowning and the photographer captures everything

A newlywed couple’s wedding photo shoot turned into a life-saving situation when the groom noticed a little boy in danger.
Clayton and Brittany Cook were taking wedding photos in a park near Kitchener, Ontario, on Sept. 22, as a group of young children excitedly watched. As Brittany posed for a picture, Clayton kept a close eye on the three kids who had been following them around and cheering them on.
“We were walking around getting our pictures taken and I had stopped to get pictures just of me
taken,” Brittany told the BBC. “Clayton was waiting by the pond, waiting for his turn.” Clayton said: 

“I walked over and they were looking down in the water. That’s when I saw the boy in the water struggling to keep his head up. He was swaying his arms quite a bit. That’s when I was able to jump down and was just able to reach his hand. I yelled at him, ‘grab my hand, grab my hand.’ “He was in a lot of shock,” said Clayton. “I think he was fighting for longer than I even thought.”
Brittany says at first she thought her new husband had jumped into the water as a joke, but when she and the photographer realized what was happening, the photo shoot quickly turned to Clayton and the children.
