Sounds too incredible to be true, but it is. A bride in Hoffman Estates, Ill., accidentally activated the emergency sprinkler system when she hung her wedding gown on one of the sprinkler heads. She was so inebriated she required help getting to her suite at the Hilton Garden Inn and shortly after 1:00 am, she hung her dress from the sprinkler head and set off the emergency system.
Her suite as well as the one next door were instantly flooded and rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors were damaged while over 184 rooms were evacuated due to the accompanying fire alarms going off. Seven weddings had been booked at the hotel for the night. The Bride and Groom fled the scene and have not been located. Well, yeah! I don’t care how drunk you are, you do not hang anything from an emergency sprinkler system sprinkler head. That’s what closets are for!
