Unluckiest Man Alive Drops $3,000 Engagement Ring In Pond During Proposal, And The Scene Was Caught On Film
File this one under: Fucking Shit Luck, Bro.
A Missouri man who just dropped $3,000 on an engagement ring watched it drop into a pond and out of his life forever, like a really expensive turd flushed down an algae-filled toilet.
Seth Dixon was proposing to his girlfriend, Ruth Salas, in Loose Park on Saturday when he fumbled the ring box and the diamond sphere slipped through the cracks and into the pond.
“It’s absolutely real. I wish it wasn’t,” Dixon told the Kansas City Star.
“We freaked out,” Salas added. “It ping-ponged from one plank to another. You could hear a little plop.”
The moment was caught on camera by the couple’s friend, Maddie Villareal, who stayed with the couple as they rummaged through mud and sticks to try to retrieve the ring. The couple returned to the scene of the crime the next day, hiring a man with a metal detector in hopes of finding it. No dice.
