Dressed in his wedding suit, Clayton Cook didn't hesitate to leap into a park lake to rescue one of the children watching him take photos with his new wife.
Last Friday, Canadian newlyweds Clayton and Brittany Cook noticed three kids were following them around Victoria Park in Kitchener, Ontario, as they took their pictures. At one point, Clayton saw two of the kids looking at the water, and spotted the third child struggling to get out. Clayton jumped in, grabbed the boy, and brought him to safety.
The entire time, photographer Darren Hatt was snapping pictures, and he shared the story on his Facebook page. It wasn't until later that the couple realized how the situation could have played out if Clayton hadn't noticed what was going on. "It's hitting us more that if we weren't in the right place at the right time, things may have gone differently and perhaps even tragically," Brittany told HuffPost. Catherine Garcia
