STANHOPE, Iowa -- Wes Zanker and his Fiance Shaunna were supposed to get married on Saturday, but a farming accident prevented that from happening.

Wes was severely burned earlier this month while lighting a burn pile on his farm in Stanhope.

He is recovering in an Iowa City hospital with burns on several parts of his body. Doctors say infection has taken over and he will have to remain in the hospital for a few more days.

The couple plans have their wedding next Saturday.
