FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE DAY! S PORT IN DA BUILDING
A Charlotte, North Carolina man recently dropped his engagement ring into the ocean as he was proposing. Matthew Picca and Kayla Harrity were on vacation in Southport, NC when he dropped down to one knee.
Kayla tells WBTV: "I turned around and he was getting down on one knee. As he opened the ring box, the ring fell out of the box and fell through the cracks on the deck and into the water. I didn't even get to see it before it dropped. I covered my face and began to cry because I knew my boyfriend was devastated. Several people went down to the boat slip underneath the bar and jumped in the water and started looking for the ring. At the bar, there were three men who were enjoying a beer who saw the whole thing. They must have felt bad for us and did not want to see our engagement end like this. They jumped in the water and helped look for the ring. After ten flashlights, and five pairs of goggles and over 1.5 hours of searching in the water...the ring was found! Everyone at the bar was cheering. All of a sudden, everyone was chanting 'Propose again! Do it again!' It was the best feeling in the world. My fiancé, soaking wet, smelling like salty, fishing water, proceeded to get down on one knee and put the beautiful ring on my finger! We walked upstairs and bought the men who helped us a round of shots. They were amazing and we are so grateful to have their help that night.
