...

A Bulawayo woman lost her arm 5 days before her wedding after she was attacked by a crocodile in Victoria Falls. 

 Miss Zanele Ndlovu who tied the knot with the love of her life Mr Jamie Fox this past Saturday got her right arm amputated at Mater Dei Hospital in Bulawayo the day she was attacked by a crocodile, after doctors said they could not do anything to save her arm. She could not allow the setback to stop her from wedding her husband.

According to a close family friend, Zanele had gone to Victoria Falls with her fiance and friends and they were canoeing in the Upper Zambezi. The crocodile is said to have attacked the vessel of their inflatable boat, in the process deflating it before attacking her. During the attack, the crocodile gripped her arm and ripped it off while her partner, Mr Jamie Fox made frantic efforts to save her.

Zanele managed to soldier on and attend her wedding ceremony. However the newly weds could not join their guests for the wedding reception as Zanele had to go back to Mater Dei Hospital to rest.
