Just before midnight on December 1, a man proposed to his girlfriend on a busy sidewalk in Times Square. She said yes, but a video released by the NYPD shows the man dropping the ring into a grate.

According to The Washington Post, the couple then turned to nearby police officers for help, but since there wasn’t much to be done, the pair ended up leaving without filing a report or even giving their names.

But the good news is that the NYPD has the ring. They even wiped off all the subway goo and polished it up. If you’re the Times Square ring bumbler, come pick up your litter.

Update (3:52 p.m.): The sewer ring has been spoken for.
