Remember the couple who lost their engagement ring during a marriage proposal in Times Square, NYC? Well, the couple had a fairy-tale ending. All credit goes to the New York Police Department who left no stone unturned in finding the ring that a man accidentally dropped through the sidewalk grate when her girlfriend said, ‘yes.’ After NYPD reported the mission to be accomplished, the couple who was a tourist had already left for the United Kingdom. The police department had put out all the details on Twitter along with the video in search of the couple. The tremendous shares and comments, the officers could track the couple down.

“We’re absolutely ecstatic,” the man identified as Mr Drenman told the New York Times. “We just cannot believe it,” he added. He further said that the couple did not file a police report because they never believed the ring would be found. The couple further reported to return the newer ring and have the initial one re-sized so that it never slips. They even plan to visit New York and thank the NYPD officers who went “above and beyond” to save it. The couple will get married in 2020.
