Bride escorted through wreckage of deadly NY crane collapse

NEW YORK, NY - New York fire fighters escorted a bride to her wedding following a deadly crane collapse in Lower Manhattan.

These were not the photographs Nesh Pillay of Toronto was expecting from her New York City wedding.

 The 25-year-old bride was stuck in the massive destruction of a crashed crane and water main break on Worth street, and blocked from reaching her ceremony at city hall.

 Nesh was at a nearby salon with her sister Kuvanya and her mother when the crane collapsed, killing one person and flattening a line of parked cars.

 Kuvanya says the tremors of the crash brought back memories of the nine eleven terror attacks.

 But it was the FDNY to the rescue, as firefighters escorted Nesh and her family through the wreckage to the wedding.
