Playing Man Pretends He's Having Peanut Allergy Reaction In Elaborate Hospital Proposal

A prankster faked a medical emergency to propose to his girlfriend — but she still said yes.

Lauren Trulli, a nurse in New Jersey, jumped into action when she saw Tom Ciancia, who has a peanut allergy, being carried out of an ambulance on a stretcher into the ER where she works.

Thinking he was having a serious reaction, she ran to his side, only to watch in shock as he dropped to one knee.

"This was the best way to surprise you," he told Trulli, before popping the question.

Little did she know, he'd convinced staff at the hospital, where he also works as a nurse, to help him with his plan.

"I was so nervous," Ciancia told Inside Edition. "Imagine if she said no in front of all of our co-workers."
