Couple Tragically Passes Away On Their Wedding Day

It should've been a beautiful weekend for Will and Bailee. Sadly their fairytale wedding ended tragically. The couple died because of a helicopter crash, just half an hour after getting married, reports CNN.

Will Byler and Bailee Ackerman Byler got married last Saturday on the ranch of Will's family and departed the party by helicopter. There family and friends waved as they took off in the sky. Ten minutes later, the aircraft crashed into a hill in Texas. The family discovered the wreckage the following morning.

"Tragic and sad. Prayers for the families of all who were lost."

"The family says the helicopter was headed for the airport in San Antonio and was supposed to land by midnight. When the family could not reach anyone, the found out from air traffic control the chopper put out a distress call before disappearing from the radar," reporter Charly Edsitty writes on Twitter. "The family is in shock over the accident and knew something was wrong when they didn’t hear from anyone hours later. Tragic and sad. Prayers for the families of all who were lost."

"It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the tragic passing of two Bearkats Will Byler (Agriculture Engineering senior) and Bailee Ackerman Byler (Agricultural Communication senior) in a helicopter accident departing their wedding," the Houstonian wrote on their Facebook page.
