"I am so embarrassed right now, it's not even funny," said John Iverson.
"I don't even have the words to describe…" he said.
How about "butterfingers?"
Heroic Denver firefighters volunteered to go through the muck in the sewer to search for the ring.
And after 45 minutes of searching, victory!
"There it is, we found it!" said an incredulous fireman.
"Wow. Think I could have planned a better proposal?" asked Iverson.
"It's not quite as sparkly right now, but John promises it will be!" joked a firefighter.
"I'll clean it first," Iverson told Kaitlyn.
It wasn't your standard wedding proposal, but in the end, he won the girl's heart...despite a detour through the sewer!
