Shocking video (below) shows the moment a woman from Brazil was killed just minutes before her wedding.
Rosemere do Nascimento Silva, 32, was killed when the helicopter carrying her to the altar crashed, the Daily Mail reports. The moment was captured on video.
Three others also died in the crash near Sao Paulo -- Rosemere's brother, Silvano Nascimento da Silva, the pilot flying the plane, Peterson Pinheiro, and a photographer who was six months pregnant, Nayla Cristina Neves.
Udirley Damasceno, Rosemere's fiance, didn't know about the planned surprise arrival by helicopter, and was left waiting at the altar for his bride-to-be, who never arrived.
"All brides have a dream and hers was to arrive by helicopter to their wedding without anyone knowing," said wedding organizer Carlos Eduardo Batista. The wedding party only learned of the crash when the vehicle did not arrive as planned at a nearby soccer field.
Batista confirmed the helicopter had taken off, but learned it had never landed. Only six guests out of the 300 at the wedding knew about the planned helicopter arrival.
A pastor told the tragic news to Damasceno at the altar.
"I called the pastor who was at the ceremony and he went with me to communicate to try to calm the groom,” said Batista, according to the Toronto Sun.
“He was in shock," he added. "Then the other guests knew and no one knew how to act. It was a tragedy."
In the video, a loud noise can be heard before everyone on the helicopter erupts into panicked screams as it crashes into the ground about a mile from the wedding site.
Firefighters rushed to the scene, but were not able to save the pilot or passengers.
The flight should have taken about 15 minutes.
Brazilian Aeronautics Reserve Col. Luis Lupoli said Pinheiro may have made mistakes during the flight. Investigators have said the helicopter may have hit a tree during low visibility conditions of clouds and rain.
In August 2016, a South Carolina woman had a fatal heart attack shortly before she was to get married, and her funeral was held the day her wedding would have been, Inside Edition reports.
Stacey Scott-Bond, 41, had the heart attack a week before her wedding to Guy A. Weaver, as she ran last-minute errands to prepare for the big day.
"It was supposed to be a celebration of love, instead it's turning into a celebration of life," wrote one of Scott-Bond's bridesmaids in a Facebook tribute to the bride.
