When planning his proposal to Suzannah, John decided to book a weekend at a fancy hotel on the beautiful Atlantic coast of Cornwall.

John knew he was going to pop the question on a romantic walk along the cliffs.

But just as John was about to whip out the ring, he slipped on the uneven ground and broke his ankle.

The injury was so serious that John couldn’t move. The couple had to call the coast guard to come to his assistance.

As they waited for the coast guard, John realized he had two options: either postpone the proposal until they were somewhere less scenic, or just bite the bullet and do it right there.

The hopeful fiancé opted for the latter and popped the question right then and there.

Thankfully, Suzannah said yes!

The coast guard arrived shortly after and agreed to take these proposal photos to savor the moment forever.

In fact, these first responders were more than happy to be involved with the special experience. The official Newquay Coastguard tweeted:

The casualty today was a John who was visiting Cornwall with Suzie for the weekend. He was intending a romantic proposal but after slipping while waiting for emergency services decided to ask then as it was more romantic than hospital. She said yes! Congratulations to you both.

The coast guard even congratulated the couple with a bottle of champagne and tweeted again:

Update from our casualty yesterday who slipped on the coast path & proposed to his lady whilst waiting for emergency services. Champagne & a plaster cast, good combination! Best wishes for a speedy recovery &congratulations again.

Jokes about how John “fell for” Suzannah were in no short supply.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
