NYPD Recovers Engagement Ring For Unlucky New York Couple

A marriage proposal went wrong after the ring was dropped down a grate, and now the NYPD are searching for the lucky couple.

They were standing in New York's Time Square when the calamitous mistake happened.

Moments after getting down on one knee, the man dropped the ring, which fell 2.4 metres through the grate -- seemingly never to be returned.

Against the odds, the NYPD found the jewelry after the couple reported it.

But police are now unable to find them.

The NYPD released images of the pair, as well as the now clean ring, in the hope they can find the couple as soon as possible.
