Top 10 Embarrassing Marriage Proposals

Clumsiness on Brooklyn Bridge

Next

Here’s a romantic setting for a proposal – the pedestrian walkway above Brooklyn Bridge, with views over New York and family members discreetly tucked away, filming the whole thing. But while the proposal was planned to the last detail, the one thing that Don Walling didn’t check was how big the gaps between the planks were, and whether a ring would fit through them.Because that’s what happened. Don got down on one knee in front of girlfriend Gina Pellicani, opened the box and dropped the ring between the planks. His face (above) says it all. Losing no time, he climbed down the bridge onto the roadway below, triggering a suicide alert with local police, and retrieved the ring. Luckily she said yes, and they later went on the Today program to tell the world about it.
