Whatever happened to just getting down on bended knee?
A Dutch man with a creative side wanted to give his girlfriend a dramatic marriage proposal she’d never forget. His plan: Rent out a crane that would hoist him up to her windowsill as she slept, serenade her with a song and then pop the big question.
That was the plan, anyway.
The crane ended up toppling over during the romantic stunt, smashing a large hole in the neighbour’s roof. Luckily, nobody was hurt in the accident, but several units had to be evacuated. Here’s where the story takes an interesting twist though:
Somehow, right there in that wreckage-filled mess, she said yes. The couple is now planning to go off to Paris to celebrate.
Meanwhile, back at the cleanup site:
“…the crane fell again during attempts to right it with a larger crane, bashing in the rest of the neighbors’ roof. The town’s mayor is on the spot after the building was declared unsafe. Six apartments were evacuated.”
Ah, true love. You can check out more disastrous proposals below:
