The bride’s quiet hen party in a villa outside Karlstad came to a quick end with a quick death, less than 24 hours before she was set to walk down the aisle.
Just before 8.30pm Saturday night, the 33-year-old woman collapsed without warning in front of her family and friends.
“It’s incredibly tragic,” Stefan Sundberg, a police officer in Karlstad, told the Expressen newspaper.
Ambulances arrived in less than 15 minutes and tried desperately to revive the betrothed with CPR, but all efforts proved futile.
Police do not suspect foul play, or that the death was caused by alcohol, drugs or something she ate.
“This was a sudden death, she just collapsed in front of her loves ones,” Sundberg said, adding that the cause of death is still unknown and officials continue to talk with her relatives.
“I miss and love her, just like our children and families do,” said the woman’s fiancé, who would have become her husband on Sunday.
