What was supposed to be a celebration of the union of two families in Bangladesh turned out to be the worst day of their lives as lightning crashed their wedding party, killing at least 17 people.

Authorities said the groom was not spared from the lightning but he survived, while the bride was not with the party.

The BBC reports that wedding guests were getting off a boat heading towards the bride’s house when they were struck by lightning.

Bangladesh is no stranger to killer lightnings as more than 200 people were killed in 2016, 82 of those in a single day.
