Man loses engagement ring while proposing in Times Square

New York City Police are trying to track down an unlucky bridegroom who got so excited while proposing, he dropped his ring down a Times Square grate. If you're thinking that he looks panicked, that's because the ring had dropped into a subway grate and he couldn't get it out, reports Mashable.

NY police found the ring and the couple as well.

A short surveillance video released by the New York Police Department shows Drennan lying down on the ground, peering into the abyss in a desperate search for the lost ring.

They are now asking the public to help them find the newly engaged couple. Drennan proposed to Anthony in Central Park, and she said the ring slipped off her finger and fell into the grate late Friday night.
