Media reports say a Brazilian bridegroom bled to death at his wedding reception when he tripped and fell on an empty glass of beer.

The G1 news website says the freak accident occurred early Monday morning some six hours after navy sergeant Fabio Jefferson dos Santos Maciel and Geise Guimaraes tied the knot.

Citing wedding guests, G1 says Maciel was dancing with one of the bridesmaids when he lost his balance and fell to the ground shattering the glass he was carrying in his left pants pocket.

G1 says a piece of glass severed his femoral vein, causing a massive loss of blood.

He died shortly after being rushed to a nearby hospital.
