Couple Try ‘Dirty Dancing’ Lift For Wedding, End Up In Hospital

Things aren’t always as easy as they look. This couple was practicing the iconic “Dirty Dancing” lift for their wedding when everything went wrong.

Andy and Sharon are engaged to be married, and they’re both big fans of “Dirty Dancing.” So much so that they watched the movie “more than 30 times,” and wanted to perform the iconic “lift” scene during their wedding dance. When practicing, Sharon ran towards Andy, and jumped into his arms. Only it was less “into his arms” and more “into him,” as they “collided,” resulting an Andy actually being knocked unconscious, and Sharon was left pretty winded.

They say that doctors actually laughed when they heard about how the injuries happened after their ambulance ride. The couple have instead decided to perform a slow dance rather than the “Dirty Dancing” lift. They’re both doing ok after the fact, Andy does have a bruised back, and Sharon is still sore, but overall aren’t in too bad shape.
