Teen ditches prom to spend night in hospital with ailing date

A Baltimore teenager had a prom night to remember on Saturday — but probably not in the way she had always imagined.

Kasey Rosen had been looking forward to going to prom at Baltimore’s National Aquarium with her boyfriend, Josh Popkin, but Popkin suffered a collapsed lung the day before the dance. Popkin told her to go have fun at the dance without him, but Rosen wasn’t having it, according to CBS Baltimore. Instead, she showed up at the hospital dressed to impress and spent the night with her boyfriend.

After word of her story got out, the National Aquarium offered free tickets to the couple.
