Video of the incident uploaded to the NYPD Twitter account show the aftermath of the proposal. While his partner watches, the man drops to his stomach on the sidewalk but the ring is 3000 per cent out of his reach.

However, New York’s finest came to the rescue.

“WANTED for dropping his fiancée’s ring in @TimesSquareNYC,” the NYPD tweeted. “She said Yes – but he was so excited that he dropped the ring in a grate. Our @NYPDSpecialops officers rescued it & would like to return it to the happy couple.” 

In a following tweet, the NYPD shared a picture of the ring all clean and shiny.

The video has been viewed almost a million times so here’s hoping the couple have somehow come across it.

The NYPD also shared a photo – the best they have – of the couple as well as another picture of the ring.

It’s a damn noice ring guys.

The lesson in all of this? Never propose over a bloody grate.
