A Ra'anana groom had a limp end to his wedding night when the traditional glass he broke under the huppa pierced his shoe and penetrated his foot, reports Kol Ra'anan. The man was reportedly surprised to feel a sharp pain when he trod on the glass, and after a few moments noticed that his sock and shoe were soaked in blood and that the sole of his shoe had a large tear in it. A doctor who was among the wedding guests bandaged the wound, and the groom spent the next few hours limping painfully at his reception, unable even to perform the traditional wedding dance with his bride. At the end of the evening, the unhappy couple went to hospital, where doctors discovered that a shard of glass had penetrated 1.5 cm into the man's foot. They removed it under local anesthetic and treated the injury. The couple is now reportedly suing the reception center for NIS 23,000 for physical and mental suffering, claiming it was responsible for wrapping the glass in aluminum foil, rather than the traditional - and more protective - cloth.
