The couple-who've seen Dirty Dancing more than 30 times-say they were at a beer garden when they decided the lift would be a great addition to their wedding dance.

Sharon and Andy Price were excited to try the iconic move from their favorite movie, "Dirty Dancing".

"I was concussed. I was out".

The couple have now said they will rethink their wedding dance following the accident.

Mr Price said: "We were about 30ft apart and Sharon ran and I grabbed her hips and the next thing we knew we were flat out on the floor".

Their family thought they were joking. "I ended up in a neck brace and had to have a CT scan", Andy Price added to the BBC.

The Dodge Viper will end its production run this summer at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit. Vera Bradley, Inc. (VRA) exchanged hands at an unexpectedly high level of 0.51 million shares over the course of the day.

One couple definitely did not have the time of their lives while recently attempting to pull off Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze's iconic lift from the 1987 classic Dirty Dancing.

"(The) family didn't think we would actually do it, and when we were lying on the floor, (they) thought we were messing about until they heard me gasping for breath", Sharon, 52, told TODAY. "I wasn't too aware of what was going on after that", said the bride-to-be. An ambulance was called and they were taken to a hospital and discharged several hours later.

"When I ran at Andy, he tried to lift me, but we just collided".

But the pair who will marry next October, said they will be sticking to a slow routine for their first dance. "Our feet were still entwined and they had to separate us". 'I think we're going to go for a slow one for our first dance, ' said Sharon.

However, they failed to flawless the lift and Andy, 51, and Sharon, 52, were rushed to a nearby hospital after their relatives realised they were in a bad way.

A word of warning if you're planning an elaborate wedding dance in the hope that it'll make a splash online.
