OKINAWA – It would have been funny but for the tragic turn.
A 32-year-old man’s proposal to his girlfriend went awry as he fell off a bridge after she said yes to him.
According to Yahoo News, the man popped the question on Irabu Bridge in the Okinawa Prefecture of Japan. The man then slipped and fell into the sea at around midnight on September 4, the police said.
The couple drove there and parked near the centre of the bridge. The man was reportedly intoxicated when he proposed to his girlfriend after they both exited their vehicle. A Nippon TV report said that the man jumped onto a ledge at the edge of the bridge after his girlfriend said yes. And he then fell off.
The woman called the police who searched for the man. He was found seven hours later and was confirmed dead at the hospital.
