KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri couple who accidentally dropped a $3,000 engagement ring into a pond has had a chance to redo their engagement proposal on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
The Kansas City Star reports that a video on Facebook shows Seth Dixon dropping the ring on Kansas City’s Loose Park bridge while proposing to his girlfriend, Ruth Salas, on Sept. 9. The ring slipped between the bridge’s slats and fell into the pond.
The couple went to Los Angeles under the pretense of being interviewed by “20/20,” but Kimmel was planning to feature them on his show.
Kimmel brought them onto the stage, which had a recreation of the park and bridge. Jewelry designer Neil Lane presented them with an oval cut diamond ring that has 100 small diamonds.
The couple then redid the proposal. They didn’t drop the ring this time.
