FORT WORTH (March 31, 2013)—Dallas Wiens, the Texas man who became the first person in the U.S. to receive a full face transplant after a 2008 power line accident has married another burn victim he met at a support group.
Wiens and Jamie Nash exchanged vows Saturday at the Fort Worth church where he was critically hurt when he touched a power line.
About 200 people attended the wedding at Ridglea Baptist Church, Pastor Scott Cox said.
Cox says the couple told him they believe God brought them together.
Wiens was painting the church in 2008 when he touched the power line.
He suffered facial injuries and was blinded.
In 2011 he underwent a full facial transplant at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.
Nash's hands and back were burnt in a 2010 traffic accident.
