NYPD finds couple who dropped engagement ring down street grate


It was a wedding proposal in Central Park that started out like a romantic film - and turned into a comedy.

Shortly after proposing in New York City, a man accidentally dropped his fiancé's engagement ring down a NYC grate in Times Square.

It was initially reported the man had dropped the engagement ring about 2.5 metres down a utility grate.

Upon hearing about the incident, the New York City Police Department later managed to find and clean the ring, but they were unable to track down the couple. "Help us find the couple whose marriage proposal went horribly wrong after their engagement ring fell down the drain", NYPD tweeted along with a picture of the ring.

The ring was too big for Daniella, and had slipped off her finger in Times Square.

In the land of Trump and fascism it's nice to see that acts of kindness can still happen, like the man who tracked down the couple in this accidental, but flawless, engagement shot.

Drennan told the newspaper they had planned to keep the lost ring a secret, but a friend forwarded him the police Twitter message.

Unfortunately, cops didn't have any contact information for the couple, so they took to social media asking for help finding them. And after, the New York Police Department was on a mission to not only retrieve the ring but find the couple, with little to go on.

The police said the couple would be getting the ring back soon. "We just can not believe it".

They said: "We would like to thank everyone who shared this story!"

'Thank you so much @NYPD and everyone for sharing and reuniting me with my ring!

Speaking to the New York Times, John said: "We're absolutely ecstatic".

Another tweet was then put up, this time of the happy couple after they had been identified, alongside the words "case closed".
