Love Hurts, Love Bleeds!

Yonah Lloyd emailed this story a while back:
I played a wedding once with Gary Wallin and the groom's choice of expensive leather Bruno Magli's was a poor one - he slams into the glass under the chupah, which promptly penetrates his $299 sole and slices right up through and into his foot - the scream was something not to be forgotten. Hatzolah came, patched him up temporarily so he could "enjoy" his wedding, and the happy new couple spent the night in the hospital. Lovely.
I once played a dinner where the guest of honor stood up to speak and had a heart attack. I also once played a wedding where the kallah got dehydrated and had to go to the emergency room after Sheva Brachos. I also played an engagement party at which the Kallah fractured her ankle while dancing.
