A man’s hopes for a romantic sunset proposal were dashed earlier this month when, while proposing to his girlfriend on a boat, he accidently dropped the engagement ring.
Scott Clyne and his then-girlfriend Suzie Tucker were savoring the scenery while standing on a boat when Clyne attempted to propose… According to a now-viral TikTok, the box eventually fell into the ocean.
The 35-year-old then plunged into the water in an attempt to keep the relationship afloat, while Tucker laughed in amazement.
Over the footage, the words “Dropped the ring in the gulf during my proposal” is displayed.
A friend who was on the boat with the newlyweds captured the entire “Titanic”-like occurrence.
Clyne was able to retrieve the ring and proceed with his marriage proposal to Tucker, who accepted.
According to the 35-year-account, old’s his fiancée entered “panic mode.”
Clyne stated that the ring fell because it became entangled in the top of his shorts pocket.
“I had the ring in my back pocket, and as I reached for it, the corner of the ring box got caught on the top of my pocket and it fell out of my hands,” Clyne explained to the Post.
“Everything became a complete haze after that! I can only recall thinking, “This can’t be happening!,” and the next thing I know, I was in the sea.”
“I jumped in without hesitation since I anticipated it would swiftly sink, and I didn’t want to take a chance. Clyne said, “I watched it bounce off the deck and hit the water, and thankfully it floated for a single second, allowing me to grab it as I went in.”
“Everything became indistinct after that. I panicked and reacted by diving into the water to get the ring box before it sank out of fear. Fortunately, I was able to find the ring!”
As of Sunday, roughly 8.4 million people have viewed the video.
According to Clyne, the two met through a mutual friend who was aware of their common enthusiasm for boating.
Clyne stated, “I’ve always wanted to propose to Suzie on our boat because it’s our passion and how we met.”
“Therefore, I organized a romantic dinner cruise on a boat to watch the sunset and dine on the water.”
Several more individuals supported their viewpoints.
“I could tell by the manner he leapt in that it was pricey,” quipped one user.
“NOW THAT’s commitment,” remarked another user.
“Imagine jumping into the sea just to have her say no,” joked a third.
