Watercooler Talk
NEW YORK (AP) — He’s lucky she said yes — and he’s also lucky the diamond engagement ring he dropped on the Brooklyn Bridge didn’t end up in the river.

Don Walling fumbled the ring as he proposed to his girlfriend on the pedestrian walkway of the New York City bridge. But he valiantly shimmied down to the lower span — where car traffic travels — and found the bauble. It was slightly bent, but the diamonds were still in place.

A police van that patrols the bridge stopped traffic to let him retrieve it.

The Coram resident and girlfriend Gina Pellicani plan to get married on April 24, 2010, the anniversary of the day they started dating four years ago.
