The lobby ceiling of the Cuban hotel Sol Rio De Luna y Mares collapsed on Feb. 2 during a wedding ceremony rehearsal, burying in the debris a British couple and their 24 guests, many of which were seriously injured. John and Sarah Wenham were saving for years and had planned the $30,000 wedding of their dreams in Cuba, but the roof collapse turned their special day into a nightmare. Nothing has been reported up to now regarding the cause of the devastation.
