Woman works in her wedding dress - level 3

Woman works in her wedding dress - level 3

25-04-2013 06:00

They say to make it in the world of TV news reporting, you have to be committed, even married to the job. But this news reporter took the advice rather literally when she cut short her wedding to cover the massive earthquake in China's Sichaun province. And didn't even have time to change out of her dress.

Bride-to-be Chen Ying sprang into action and began interviewing people from the street. Appearing on air in a wedding gown and veil Chen went viral online many calling her the most beautiful bride in the world.

"I am standing at the Holiday Plaza. Fifteen minutes ago, a strong quake struck. But there haven't been casualties in this area where I am standing. Our residents in Ya'an have taken effective measures to prevent damages. I hope our city will be safe."

After doing about ten minutes of interviews on the street Chen returned to the church to make her vows. Then, perhaps unsurprisingly, went straight back to work.

Interesting words: committed (hard working), literally (exactly), cut short (make shorter), cover (report on), sprang (jump), on air (on TV), gown (dress), vow (serious promise).
