A British bride locked lips with a man other than her husband while at her wedding reception over the weekend and in the process helped save the man's life.

Kylie Cox, a 24-year-old newlywed from Cornwall, U.K., was dancing with a friend during her reception when the 28-year-old man "keeled over," reported the British tabloid The Daily Mirror.

Cox, a nurse, administered CPR to the man after he collapsed and with the help of other guests kept the man alive until paramedics arrived and took him to a local hospital.

The newlyweds went with their friend to the hospital, leaving behind their 160 guests at the reception, then spent most of their wedding night there until physicians assured them the man would pull through.

Cox recounted the story in an interview with The Mirror.

"Our friend asked me for a dance, but while we were on the dance floor, he complained of feeling faint," Cox said. "I turned round to get him a chair and he collapsed."

"I rushed over and gave him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation," said Cox. "A bridesmaid, who is also a nurse, did the same and my uncle and another guest joined in to give him chest compression until the ambulance arrived."

Asked why she decided to remain at the hospital on one of the most important nights of her life, Cox responded: "[We] spent the first night of our marriage at the hospital, because we didn’t know whether our friend was going to live or die."

Kylie added, "The doctors told us it was a miracle he survived . . . He’s still in hospital, but he’s going to make a full recovery."

The newlyweds plan on having a second one later this year for family and friends, reported The Mirror.
