Man nearly drowns girlfriend while proposing under water

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Anthony Taylor thought that proposing to his girlfriend Stephanie Walker underwater during a scuba dive would be an unforgettable romantic gesture - but it almost had a tragic ending when she was so surprised she nearly drowned.

Mr Taylor, 27, and Miss Walker, 26, from Wolverhampton, were on holiday in the Turkish resort of Marmaris in August last year when he decided to propose.He approached scuba diving instructors, who helped him make a laminated card with the words 'Will you marry me?' written on it.

Peep pictures when you continue!

When they were 40ft below the surface of the water, Mr Taylor showed the card to Miss Walker - making her gasp out of surprise and filling her mask with water.
'I was originally going to propose to Stephanie over dinner, or on the beach,' he said. 'But then I got a bit creative.
'I had bought the ring before we set off on holiday. And when I went to book the scuba diving trip, it got me thinking. I drew up the signs with the instructors beforehand.
Luckily, instructors were on hand to help the shocked woman recover, and when she had regained her composure she accepted the proposal.
