Good News: Bride Marries Days After Escaping Fire by Jumping from 3rd Story Window

A Colorado woman is just thankful she could walk down the aisle after she escaped a raging fire less than a week before her wedding by jumping from a third-story window. Lenise Ruff, 23, was married Saturday in Castle Rock, Colo., even after she suffered burns on her face and hands from the fire and her maid of honor broke two vertebrae in the fall. Ruff and her roommate, also her maid of honor, Marilyn Kruc, had been trapped by a fire in their Centennial, Colo., apartment building on Monday. Without other options, Ruff and Kruc had to jump from their third-floor apartment rather than risk remaining near the smoke and flames.  In spite of the injuries, Ruff decided to go ahead with the wedding, even though she wasn’t sure whether Kruc would be able to attend. The day before the wedding Ruff talked to Kruc, who insisted she would be able to attend the ceremony no matter what. Click here for more on this wedding that beat the odds!
