A lot of people spend a lot of time planning the perfect proposal. They plan out what they are going to wear, what they are going to say, and most importantly to some, what the ring is going to look like.
If you get down on one knee holding a ring, you hope that the person you give it to will like it, but you can never really be sure. But for one couple, the opportunity to see the ring was unfortunately delayed.
A man got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend in the middle of Times Square in New York City. It's a busy area, but for a lot of people it means a lot to them.
However his excitement got the better of him. His now fiancee said yes, but when he went to give her the ring he dropped it.
WANTED for dropping his fiancée's ring in @TimesSquareNYC!— NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) December 1, 2018
She said Yes - but he was so excited that he dropped the ring in a grate. Our @NYPDSpecialops officers rescued it & would like to return it to the happy couple. Help us find them? ðŸ’ call 800-577-TIPS @NYPDTIPS @NYPDMTN pic.twitter.com/tPWg8OE0MQ
While that clumsy issue shouldn't be a big deal, you just have to bend down and grab it, right? Wrong. The spot where the man proposed was right over one of the huge grates in the sidewalk. Uh oh.
The ring disappeared in front of their eyes, his romantic plan dashed. But luckily for this couple, the NYPD is apparently full of a bunch of romantics.
The NYPD was able to recover the ring, and have released the video of the couple struggling to get the ring out of the grate to try and help track them down.
Lucky for the couple, the tweet went viral and eventually they were able to get in touch with the NYPD. The couple was on vacation and while they've returned back home, the NYPD are working on getting the ring sent back to them as soon as possible.
We would like to thank everyone who shared this story! The (now) happy couple is back in their home country, but thanks to your retweets they heard we were looking for them! We're making arrangements to get them their ring back. Congratulations! https://t.co/rXHxxkwClm— NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) December 2, 2018
Congrats to the happy couple! At least now that you know the ring is safe you'll be able to laugh at it!
