Man Drops Ring While Proposing To His Girlfriend Near Waterfall

Man drops the ring on that one moment that every couple should remember for the rest of their lives. A marriage proposal went down the waterfall.

Andrew Schuhmann thought it was a good idea to bring the love of his life, Kammie, to the scenic Havasupai Falls in the Grand Canyon.

The couple was on a backpacking trip with another friend, who secretly agreed with Andrew to film the dramatic moment.

‘Caught up with the beauty of the area, I hastily created the whole plan, getting greedy and wanting a waterfall in the shot,’ Schuhmann told Newsflare.

Andrew had practiced his proposal and seemed to have the moves down pat when the big moment came
But just before he was to slip the ring on his beloved’s finger, it fell into the water
‘I would keep the ring on my pinky finger, my hand in a fist the whole time to ensure it would not slip off, and to keep it hidden,’ he said

He devised a clever plan to make the proposal as climactic as possible.

‘I would tell her that I wanted a picture of us jumping off the smaller falls, he would take the picture/video,’ he said.

‘I would keep the ring on my pinky finger, my hand in a fist the whole time to ensure it would not slip off, and to keep it hidden.

‘But instead of jumping, I would go down on my knee and propose, and after she said yes, we would take the plunge together!’

After practicing dozens of times, it appeared that the stage was set.

‘So we waded out and prepared to jump, but when the moment came, I guess I got nervous, and as I dropped to my knee and brought up my hand with the ring to ask the question, the ring was gone!’ he said.

‘In my panic, I told her “I just dropped the ring!”

‘Not knowing what else to do, I asked in a rushed, desperate manner, “Uh, will you marry me?”

The couple had been together for six years prior to the dramatic moment

The couple searched for the ring for three hours, but to no avail. They were exhausted afterwards
‘We took turns consoling each other in the days after, and decided to tell our parents and friends, which made it real,’ he said

‘Thankfully, she said “Yes.”

‘After a quick kiss, I yelped, “Now help me find the ring!” and jumped into the water to dive for it.’

‘What should have been the most memorable moments of our new life became one of the most devastating moments of my mine,’ he said.
