Fire sprinkler dampens wedding party

June 4, 2012 at 1:54 PM   |   Comments

COLLEGE PARK, Ga., June 4 (UPI) -- A Georgia bride said her wedding was tainted when a hotel sprinkler system went off, soaking her and her bridesmaids in a black substance.

Shalita Harris said she and her bridesmaids were getting ready in a room at the Westin Hotel in College Park and the triggered sprinkler system caused five members of her bridal party to be hospitalized, mainly due to breathing problems, WSB-TV, Atlanta, reported Monday.

"Before we got ready to leave the room, we heard a big boom," Harris said. "I felt like my life was going to end right then and there."

Harris said her ceremony continued with only two of the expected eight bridesmaids in attendance.

The manager of the Westin Hotel said the sprinkler spray was confined to one room and investigators do not yet know what caused it to go off.
