Note to self: when attempting to recreate the iconic Dirty Dancing lift scene, recreate the training montage first...
A couple has been hospitalised after trying to recreate the iconic lift scene in Dirty Dancing.
They were messing around in the back garden of their local pub when their lift attempt when terribly wrong and they were both rushed to their local hospital.
Andy, the lifter, was left unconscious after his fiancee Sharon rushed toward him and fell at the crucial moment.
Sharon was left severely winded.
The couple were planning on performing the lift during their wedding ceremony as they both love the classic film.
Sharon explained to the LadBible that they wanted to perform the lift during their first dance.
"I looked at Andy and suggested that we have it as our first dance at our wedding.
"We immediately set about trying to recreate that iconic moment.
"But it's fair to say it didn't go to plan.
"We are OK now but Andy has a bruised back and neck and my back still hurts."
The couple are now considering a less risky first dance.
