At first, it looks like a proposal gone right. The woman is standing, hands over open mouth. The man is down on one knee.
But that's not quite what's happening in a video released by the New York Police Department. Just after the unidentified man proposed in Times Square, NYPD said, he dropped his now-fiancée's ring into a sidewalk grate.
What the video actually shows: the woman, surprised and aghast, and the man, kneeling to peer down into the grate to see how far the ring had fallen.
