Father dies at wedding

MOMENTS after twirling his newlywed daughter on the dance floor at her Costa Rica wedding, Tim Buchanan had a heart attack and died.

His devastated wife, Jeni, broke the news to friends via Facebook, writing: "You never know when the last time will be the last time! He was the most beautiful soul I have ever known and I will never be the same without him.”

Tim was a veteran detective with the US Sheriff's department in South Carolina. He served for 19 years and was 54.

His wife's Facebook page suggests Tim knew he was unwell but didn't go to the doctor for fear of what may be revealed about the state of his health.

The family is reportedly still in Costa Rica trying to make arrangements to bring Tim home to South Carolina. A GoFundMe page has been set up by friends of the family to help cover expenses.
