London, July 15 (ANI): The bouquet throwing tradition turned into tragedy at an Italian wedding, after throwing of the flowers caused a plane to crash in Suvereto, near Livorno in western Tuscany.

A couple had rented a small jet to fly over their guests at Montioni park, and drop the bride's bouquet to women standing below.

But, according to Corriere della Sera, the wedding turned sour when the flowers apparently got sucked back into one of the engines, leading the plane to catch fire and explode, reports The Telegraph.

The aircraft subsequently plunged into a field next to a hostel below, injuring one passenger seriously.

Isidoro Pensieri, who was responsible for throwing the wedding bouquet, suffered "facial and cranial trauma" and multiple fractures to both legs. (ANI)
