Preparing to get down on one knee can be an extremely nerve-wrecking experience.
You really want to the moment to be just right, so the potential for slip-ups is huge; which is what this man found out when he went to propose to the woman of his dreams.
Seth Dixon had chosen a romantic location on top of a quiet wooden bridge, poured his heart out in a romantic speech, and looked set for a beaming ‘yes’ from his partner of four years Ruth, when the unthinkable happened.
Somehow the ring slipped from his hands and by a cruel twist of fate slid right through a slit in the timber bridge and into the river below!
The whole thing was captured on camera by their friends, check out the video above for their shocked reactions.
According to social media, friends of the couple tried fishing for the ring but to no avail. A GoFundMe page has since been created to replace it.
