CLEVELAND (AP):A terminally ill Ohio man who arrived at his daughter's wedding by ambulance gave her away from a hospital gurney.
Guests cried and clapped as Scott Nagy took part in daughter Sarah's wedding, which was held on the weekend, at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Strongsville, The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reported.
A volunteer team of medical professionals helped Nagy escort the 24-year-old bride as groom Angelo Salvatore and the Rev Chuck Knerem awaited their arrival.
"It was a promise I made in March, to walk her down the aisle," said the 56-year-old Brunswick man. "She's my princess. This is my definition of walking down the aisle."
Nagy was diagnosed last year with urethral cancer and has undergone chemotherapy. He has been at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center since August.
Doctors were uncertain if he would be able to make the wedding, initially scheduled for next year. But with monitor cords slipped under his tuxedo and a tracheal tube attached, he made the trip down the aisle, kissing a grandson who was the ringbearer, and giving a thumb's up.
