Man overboard! Going in after engagement ring

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Proposal videos typically tend to make your heart warm and fuzzy, perhaps even induce a tear or two. This one induces a tear for a much different reason: The engagement ring in the watercraft proposal goes overboard and into an open body of water.

In the video, you see the bride-to-be swat the man’s hand — as though in shock. That accidentally loosens up the man’s grip on the ring — even for just a second — and dislodges the new ring into a new resting place. There are gasps, followed by silence. All the while, the woman has both of her hands over her mouth. She was hit twice in less than 10 seconds with some pretty shocking realities. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
