N.Y. Man Drops Ring Proposing On Brooklyn Bridge


brooklyn-bridgeHe’s lucky she said yes – and he’s also lucky the diamond engagement ring he dropped on the Brooklyn Bridge didn’t end up in the East River. Don Walling fumbled the ring as he proposed to his now fiancee on the pedestrian walkway of the bridge, then valiantly dodged traffic to retrieve it from the road below. He shimmied down to the road from the upper span, finding the bauble slightly bent, but with the diamonds still in place. A police van that patrols the bridge stopped traffic to let him retrieve it.

The Coram resident and Gina Pellicani plan to get married on April 24.
