Reports from Pakistan say at least 17 people drowned – including a bridegroom and two children -- when a rescue boat carrying a wedding party in flood-ravaged Punjab Province overturned.
The accident happened on September 14 when the boat went down in rough waters in the province's Muzaffargarh district.
Most of the passengers were from a wedding party that requested the use of the boat to take them to an Islamic wedding reception.
The distraught bride told a private Pakistani TV channel that she saved her life by holding on to an electricity pole.
Authorities say 22 people were rescued.
A search for other missing passengers was continuing on September 14.
Pakistani President Mamnoon Hussain's office issued a statement expressing “profound grief and sorrow” about the tragedy.
