Engagement ring falls off of Brooklyn BridgeWill you marry me – even if I’m a klutz?

A non-coordianted man dropped his diamond engagement ring while attempting to propose to his girlfriend on the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC, then braved moving traffic to retrieve the roadkill from the road below.

“I don’t know what was going through my head,” said Don Walling, 29, of Coram, L.I., a teacher at Intermediate School 88 in Brooklyn. “Everything was exactly how I wanted, except for the whole ring thing.”

Motorists slid to avoid him, and motorists who misunderstood the situation yelled at him not to jump into the East River as he climbed down from the pedestrian walkway.  With the economy as it is, more people have committed suicide from the bridge than in past years.

Police Officers traffic, and Walling got back the platinum 1.6-carat diamond engagement ring, which was run over and lightly damaged by a vehicle. Read the rest of this entry »

Waqlmart parking lot engagement ringA 6-year-old girl who found “a toy”  diamond ring in a Wal-Mart parking lot has helped put a smile back on a nervous Benton newlywed with her missing $9,000 engagement ring.After losing her 1.26-carat diamond ring at a Bryant Wal-Mart on Tuesday, Haley Reep Wagnon reported it missing, and Bryant police reviewed Wal-Mart’s surveillance videos and noticed a young girl seemed to pick up the ring.

“I saw a little girl pick up the ring in the parking lot, but I don’t think the girl was trying to steal the ring and I don’t think the family with her was even aware,” Bryant police Detective Todd Crowson said. “She probably didn’t even know that it is a real ring.” In fact, the way she treated it proved so.

Local law enforcement were able to identify the family’s vehicle and were able to determine which Saline County dealership sold it to them. From there, they were able to use their mad detective skills to find out the truck was registered to a Michael Wheaton of Bryant.

“I received a call about a young lady losing a ring and a little girl picking it up, and I said, ‘OK, you’ve got my attention,’” Wheaton said. “I came down to the station and when he showed me the picture, I said, ‘That’s my brother from Chicago and his kids.’” Read the rest of this entry »
