Clayton Cook - The Groom Who saved a boy during his Wedding Photoshoot #WATWB

by - May 25, 2018

It certainly isn't something the bride expected. One moment Brittany Cook of Cambridge, Ontario was happily posing with her husband for the wedding photos and the next moment, he was dashing off and jumping into a pond!

While posing for the photographs by a park bridge, the groom Clayton Cook had noticed a child in the pond struggling to stay afloat. The child had been pushed by other children and was about to drown when Clayton reached him.

Darren Hatt, the wedding photographer, was there at the right moment and took pictures of the moment which went viral shortly after.

By the time the bride and photographer had realized what had happened, the groom had already dived in (wearing his wedding suit and all) and saved the child.

“That’s Clay, like that’s Clay to me,” his bride Brittany mentioned to reporters later. “It’s something he would just instinctively do.”


Of course, who else but Ellen Degeneres to have the final word in this story. Watch how she thanks Clayton Cook for being a Hero of Kindness.

  13. Really nice that this groom stepped up and helped this little boy. I wonder if there was any follow up on the little boy, he looks upset as he walks away. I hope his parents are taking care of him and watching over him.
