- A man's romantic proposal nearly went all wrong after he dropped the engagement ring in the ocean
- He proposed to his surfer girlfriend while they were out at sea
- Luckily the ring that was lost in the ocean was a spare and not valuable
A man's proposal did not quite go the way he planned after he dropped the engagement ring in the water while proposing to his girlfriend at sea. The pair were out surfing when he pulled out the ring to pop the question. Before the excited young woman could answer, the young man accidentally dropped the ring into the deep, blue sea.
Christopher Garth and his girlfriend, Lauren Oiye were surfing in Honolulu, Hawaii. The 38-year-old Garth had been planning to pop the big question to his girlfriend and decided to do it while they were out at sea.
The pair were in the ocean on their surfboards when Garth pulled out the ring and got on one knee on the board. Before Oiye could answer his proposal, however, Garth was knocked by a slight wave and dropped the ring into the ocean, according to the Independent.
Fortunately, he was smart enough to not carry the authentic ring out to sea and the one that was lost was a spare. His excited fiance took to social media to share the good news.
Congrats to the lovely couple.
