Man Drops Ring Into Sewer; She Still Says 'Yes'
DENVER (AP) — A Colorado man had just proposed to his girlfriend on Valentine's Day — and she said "yes" — when he dropped an heirloom wedding band into a storm drain in downtown Denver.
But Denver firefighters came to the rescue and helped John Iverson find the ring after 45 minutes of sifting through muck dredged up from the storm sewer.
The ring belonged to Iverson's future mother-in-law. Iverson managed to get the diamond engagement ring onto his fiancee's finger without a hitch.
He tells KUSA-TV he was upset when he fumbled the wedding band but still overjoyed that his girlfriend, Kaitlyn, accepted.
Kaitlyn didn't give her last name.
