DENVER, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- A Denver man said his marriage proposal was interrupted when he dropped his girlfriend's mother's wedding band down a sewer drain.

John Iverson said he was pulling out the diamond engagement ring during his 9 p.m. Valentine's Day proposal when the wedding band, which belonged to his girlfriend's mother, also fell from his pocket and rolled through a grate into the city sewer system, KUSA-TV, Denver, reported Tuesday.

"I was overjoyed by the fact that she said yes, so the fact that the ring went in there -- I was upset, but I was still happy," Iverson said.

The Denver Fire Department responded and helped the couple recover the ring after about 45 minutes of searching.
