Talk about a prom night to remember.

A group of Nebraska students taking prom pictures took an unexpected swim before making it to the dance. And KTIV was one of the first to cover it.

"All that weight on the bridge caused the group to take a dip into the Whites' 4-foot-deep pond behind their house."

A few damp spirits aside, the students still made it to Pierce High School's prom.

But the next day, one student tweeted what happened. And as you can imagine, that picture went viral. (Via Twitter / @rohRICHBOY_1)

Now, if you're thinking you've heard this story before, pretty much the same thing happened two years ago to a group of Wisconsin students.

"This dock just couldn't take the weight of all these dolled up Wisconsin high schoolers, and then you can see it gave way. One student said the girls were screaming and the boys were laughing." (Via NBC)

We're sure the Nebraska bunch will be able to look back and laugh at their experience, too.
