Tanker trucks sprinkle water on wedding

Trending: Thief texts owner after stealing goods

Twelve tanker trucks sprinkled water on eight cars that were part of a wedding convoy when they crossed Egongyan bridge in Chongqing city on Saturday, as a special gift for the newly-wed couple Zhou Yanping and Wang Jianglin. Chongqing Evening News reported.

The trucks were from the bride's company Chongqing Binnan Urban Construction Limited Co., whose boss thought of the idea to sprinkle the party with water.

But not everybody was impressed. Chen Lu, a worker at a community on Nanbin road, said it was a waste of public resources as these vehicles should be for public works. Wang Lingmin (online name) questioned why no government department came out to stop them.

"Those tank trucks are the company's private properties, so they don't need to report to us. Personally, I think it is a good idea as it also cools the hot city," said a staff member at Nanbin Road Administrative Committee.
