Police in New York City are searching for a couple whose engagement went slightly awry this weekend.
Security footage from the New York Police Department shows a man getting down on one knee to propose then promptly dropping the engagement ring down a subway grate in Times Square.

Luckily, there’s precedent for finding rings lost under bizarre circumstances. In August 2017, a woman in Alberta, Canada found her engagement ring after losing it while gardening 13 years prior. It was on a carrot.
