FORT MYERS, Fla. - Trey Turner of Fort Myers saved up the money for a ring and built the courage to propose to his girlfriend Kelsey Kramer on the Brooklyn Bridge. But, as he was popping the question, the diamond ring slipped through his fingers.

The ring didn't go all the way to the water. There was a construction site right underneath. Without a ring, Trey continued proposing.

 But the story does have a happy ending. Department of Transportation officials found the ring and gave it back! Their wedding is set for April in Florida, with someone assigned to keep an extra tight grip on the wedding rings.
