Fiancé Drops Engagement Ring Off Brooklyn Bridge

In another example of a marriage proposal not going according to plan, comes this story from New York. 

Don Walling decided to propose to his girlfriend, Gina Pellicani, on the Brooklyn Bridge while his family watched and videotaped. 

But at the moment of truth – with ring in hand – disaster struck, and it wasn’t because Gina refused to say, “I do.” Walling dropped the ring through a crack in the pedestrian bridge and into traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge roadway below.

“I got on one knee, proposed and it just flew out,” Walling said. “I watched it fall through the crack on the bridge, right between the wood planks.”

But he didn’t let his shock sway him for long. Walling swung into action.

“I kissed her, said I was sorry and told her I am going to get that ring back,” Walling said.

The groom-to-be jumped onto the bridge's roadway and began looking for the ring. Miraculously, he found it, with the help of his family and fiancée looking on from above.

The Brooklyn Bridge is iconic, and in danger of being marred by an 18 story tower built next to it.

My husband proposed to me on a bridge in Portland, OR. Said afterward that he wasn't afraid that I'd say no (rightly so), but he was terrified that he'd drop the ring (thankfully he didn't). Glad this story had a nice ending too.
