A man married his partner of 25 years the very next day after suffering a heart attack.
Philip Pickrick, 82, from Hazel Grove, Stockport, was rushed to Stepping Hill Hospital on June 14.
After doctors told him he had suffered a heart attack he proposed to girlfriend Kathleen Geering, 81, and they decided to tie the knot as soon as possible.
They told staff on the coronary care ward and the hospital chaplains organised registrars to visit and carry out the ceremony.
Since then Philip’s condition has improved. He was first moved to a non-emergency ward and this week he returned to the couple’s home.
