CNN新闻:An unforgettable wedding proposal
一次难忘的求婚

燕山大学 刘立军 宋崴 编写


◆TRANSCRIPT

AZUZ: For "10 Out of 10", an unforgettable wedding proposal not necessarily a good one. After four years of dating, Seth Dixon popped the question to Ruth Salas. But, on a bridge over water in Kansas City in Missouri - oops.

Ruth said she heard the plunk of the ring in the water. It`s not a prank. The ring is gone. And though they didn`t find it, even with the help of 30 close friends, Ruth is hoping Seth will propose again sometime.

At least the idea has a nice right to it. But it will probably have to keep her wedding a while as he saves up for the next golden opportunity.

We propose a different venue next time, though if he doesn`t alter the plan, they will have come full circle.

Does CNN 10 want to see you back tomorrow? I do. I`m Carl Azuz.
