A woman’s engagement ring falls into drain just some few moments after her boyfriend made marriage proposal to her.
The Independent reports that the couple were visiting New York when the man decided to make marriage proposal to his girlfriend.
She said “Yes,” and the elated man quickly sealed it with a ring.
However, as they moved on during the sight-seeing, the ring slipped off the fiancee’s finger and dropped into a barricaded drain.
The distraught couple did all they could to retrieve it, but they were unlucky.
After they had moved on, the Police successfully recovered the ring, and, through a tweet that soon went viral, finally located the couple who were very grateful to have the ring back.
Below is a video of the couple as they searched for the ring:
