NYPD - a heartwarming tale...

Recommended Posts

This does have an 'aviation' theme ?....

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46421814

I can only marvel at the trouble that NYPD took on this - bloody marvelous...
A very pleasant 'heartwarming' tale - with a brilliant ending.

I can only guess at how she felt when she heard the ring drop....and although it
is not revealed - it looks very expensive.

Nice.

Regards

Bill

Now Doug...

I'm a little unsure re 'Size Matters' re aviation topics - unless we are referring to the A380 ?

Gotta be careful here...

But...I think this story is a gem - considering what all the news is about nowadays...

I found it a remarkable heartwarming tale. I am so delighted for this couple.

I can only marvel at the response by the NYPD. Well done.

Really nice to read items like this.

Regards

I saw the video of this several times on the News stations yesterday.  Great job by NYPD!  Now my question is...why in the name of all sanity is this guy pulling this ring out of his pocket and getting ready to kneel down over a drain gate in the middle of a sidewalk?  Sorta reminded me of the couple taking a selfie standing way too close to the edge of the Grand Canyon.:blink:

Um, he didn't propose over the grate. He proposed in Central Park, she accepted, and despite the too-large size, insisted on wearing it.

It was hours later when the ring decided to fall off, bounce twice and then swan dive into the grate.

Ah, the old trick of photographers--just back up a little further, a little further please....  ATC uses this trick too with pilots when they want a lunch break, especially when working the control tower alone....

Bill was probably right!  The video was an outside store security camera that didn't really capture what was going on.  It looked like the guy was dropping to a knee and dropped the ring.  He was just trying to retrieved it.
