A Florida guy who lost his engagement ring while proposing to his girlfriend went to great measures to retrieve it.
Scott Clyne of Sarasota, Florida, posted a video to Facebook in which he and his girlfriend Suzie Tucker stood at the bow of a boat while the sun fell behind them.
The 35-year-old Clyne then reached into his shorts and produced a ring box, presumably in preparation for a proposal. It just took a few seconds for the box to topple into the pool.
He dove in after it without hesitation and emerged from the water moments later, carrying the box aloft to the delight of his 32-year-old fiancée.
Clyne was assisted by a boat companion who took a cell phone photo of the proposal and then snatched the ring from his finger.
He helped Clyne onto the boat and then stole his sunglasses.
Once Clyne and his girlfriend were reunited, he reenacted the proposal by getting back on one knee.
Despite the lack of sound, her reaction of laughter and a kiss to his overture suggested a positive answer…
“It’s absolutely true. Totally on the lucky side of things. There is not a single person who will forget “Clyne provided the video’s captions.
After he and his now-fiancée started dating, he updated his profile picture to a still of him floating underwater with his feet above ground.
A shortened version of the video, set to Snoop Dogg’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” was posted by Clyne on the social media platform TikTok.
Clyne commented over the video, “Dropped the ring in the gulf during my proposal.” He then added an emoji of a confused face.
He said his fiancee went into “full panic mode.” The video closed with a photo of them kissing and the words: “She still said yes.”
PEOPLE has reached out to Clyne, but did not immediately hear back.
Speaking with the Daily Mail, Clyne revealed, “I had the ring in my back pocket and when I went to go for it, the corner of the ring box got caught on the top of my pocket and dropped out of my hands, rebounding into the sea.”
Further, he said “After that, I can’t remember much of anything. I panicked and reacted by lunging for the ring box before it could sink, not caring if I fell into the water. Miraculously, I managed to get the ring back!”
On Friday night, November 25, the TikTok clip had amassed 1.5 million likes and nearly 28,000 shares.
