Unfortunately, skydiver Brandon Strohbehn did exactly that as he proposed to his girlfriend Nicole during a tandem jump 12,500 feet above the Earth.
Luckily, it was actually fake engagement ring that Strohbehn intentionally dropped to mess with future wife who we hope has a great sense of humor. Once they safely landed, he retrieved the real ring from his brother and asked the question appropriately.
Let this be a warning to anyone planning an exxxtreme proposal. When popping the question while plummeting like a rock, you should always affix your ring with a tiny parachute. That way you can ensure your proposal goes off and you don’t kill anybody on the ground below.
In other news, the fake ring killed a guy on the ground below. Probably.
