Police in New York City are searching for a couple whose engagement went slightly awry this weekend.
Security footage from the New York Police Department shows a man getting down on one knee to propose then promptly dropping the engagement ring down a subway grate in Times Square.
It is unclear why he chose to propose atop a subway grate, but love makes you do wild things.
Fortunately, the ring is safe. According to a tweet from the NYPD, special ops officers were able to retrieve and clean it. Now, though, they have to find the newlyweds, who are probably feeling a strange mix of elation and disappointment right about now.
Luckily, there’s precedent for finding rings lost under bizarre circumstances. In August 2017, a woman in Alberta, Canada found her engagement ring after losing it while gardening 13 years prior. It was on a carrot.
UPDATE: Dec. 2, 2018, 2:14 p.m. EST The couple has been found, per the New York Times. They appear to still be engaged.
