VIDEO: Beirut’s horrifying explosion captured co-incidentally during a bridal photoshoot


A bridal photoshoot happening moments before the horrifying Beirut explosion captured the perils of the blast that sent shockwaves over 200 miles away from the epicentre.

The dramatic video became wildly popular in the aftermath of the explosion that happened Tuesday in central Beirut, the capital of Lebanon.

A beautiful bride – Dr Israa Seblani – dressed in a white bridal gown was posing for a photo session, apparently unaware of the tragedy that was about to strike in a few moments.

As soon as the mega blast happened in the vicinity of the photo session, the videographer’s stability gets disrupted and he can be seen running away from the bride towards a wall beneath a nearby building to take shelter.

The shockwaves of the blast can be felt in the video, as the enormous energy released during the explosion sweeps the surrounding. Once the videographer sets the camera back in vision, the surrounding was damaged, rubbles could be seen, glasses were broken, which was perfect moments before.

VIDEO: Beirut’s horrifying explosion captured co-incidentally during a bridal photoshoot

The massive explosion jolted the Lebanese capital on Tuesday, killing more than a hundred as per the latest reports. As per reports, the blast happened as a result of a huge stockpile of explosive material stored in an unsafe condition for years.

Marriage in the time of an explosion

The bride is a doctor practising in the US. She arrived in Lebanon just three weeks ago to get married to Ahmad Subeih, 34, a businessman in Beirut. Soon after the blast, Subeih became busy checking injured nearby.

“I have been preparing for my big day for two weeks and I was so happy like all the 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?”

She said she is grateful to God for being able to escape unharmed.
