Lebanese bride happy to be alive after Beirut blast cuts short wedding video

BEIRUT - Radiant in a long white gown and veil, 29-year-old Lebanese bride Israa Seblani stands smiling and posing for her wedding video. The scene is shattered by a deafening roar, and a powerful shockwave nearly blows her off her feet. The dramatic footage captured the moment when a massive explosion rocked the Lebanese capital on Tuesday (Aug 4), killing 135 people and injuring more than 5,000. Seblani, a doctor working in the United States, helped to check on the injured nearby, before fleeing central Beirut s Saifi square to safety. A day later, she and her husband Ahmad Subeih, 34, a businessman in Beirut, were struggling to process what happened. I have been preparing for my big day for two weeks and I was so happy like all other girls, I am getting married . My parents are going to be happy seeing me in a white dress, I will be looking like a princess, she told Reuters. What happened during the explosion here - there is no word to explain... I was shocked, I was wondering what happened, am I going to die? How am I going to die?
