Awesome Tale Of The New York Proposal And The Lost Engagement Ring

Proposal was in Central Park and fell off over the drain!

This English couple is rejoicing in the return of the engagement ring that they had presumed to be lost forever after it disappeared down a New York City grate last week.

However, police said, the man dropped the ring during the proposal and it fell through a utility grate.

In the photo, Anthony was seen wearing a ring on the traditional finger, although the couple said they abandoned plans to visit a jewellery store to replace the ring on discovering it had been found. "The relieved couple is back in their home country now, but will be sure to get the ring to them quickly.and safely", NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill tweeted.

"WANTED for dropping his fiancée's ring in @TimesSquareNYC!" the NYPD wrote on Twitter.

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.

The couple asked police for help, but emergency service officers could not immediately find the sparkler.
