Woman from Benin dies hours after wedding in Sicily hospital


Palermo, November 16 - A woman from Benin died
three hours after marrying her Sicilian fiance, local media
reported Friday.
Charlotte Affodji, 32, was married Thursday to Mimmo
Lucchese, 37, inside a Palermo hospital where she was battling a
serious disease.
In order for the two to wed, the ambassador from the West
African country intervened to help cut red tape for the woman,
who immigrated to Italy seven years ago in search of treatment.
The groom, who worked at a restaurant, had quit his job in
order to console his bride in her final days.
"I wanted her to go with a smile on her face," said
Lucchese. "'Give me a kiss, give me a kiss,' she kept telling me
the last night".
Shortly after a ceremony that included doctors and nurses
from the hospital, Affodji died.
A funeral ceremony was held early Friday inside the
hospital chapel.
"I don't know what I'll do now," said her widower, "but I
became her husband, and that means a lot to me".
