A man who decided to propose to his girlfriend at a romantic spot, on a bridge over a pond, made quite a splash when the ring fell through the boards and into the water below.

The moment was caught on cell phone video as Seth Dixon got down on one knee and pulled out a ring for his love, Ruth Salas. But just as soon as he held up the shiny ring, he dropped it.

Several of the couple's friends jumped into the water to help find the ring, but no luck.

Seth and Ruth laughed about the whole ordeal while speaking with Kansas City media outlet, KMBC, but they've also started a GoFundMe page to raise money to replace it.
