A teenager saved a proposal by finding an engagement ring that got lost in the sand


A few things come to mind for a successful marriage proposal: two people in love, someone down on one knee, and — of course — a ring. 

But for one couple, the ring was almost lost forever after a mishap on a beach. 

On July 1, an unnamed man from Tennessee planned to propose to his girlfriend on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, as the Myrtle Beach Police Department shared on Facebook.

The post went on to say that the man and his girlfriend were taking photos along the beach, and when he reached for the ring to pop the question, he realized he had dropped it somewhere in the sand. 

The man then flagged the police for help, as the department said in its post, and they even enlisted the help of a police dog named Goggles.

But according to a report on “Good Morning America,” it was actually 15-year-old Isaiah Krekeler who located the ring.

Krekeler, who was visiting from Ohio, offered to look for the ring with a metal detector he had on hand after hearing people on the beach discussing the issue, as they said on “Good Morning America.” 

Krekeler found the ring in under a minute, and the man was able to go forward with his proposal.

The couple was not named in any reporting on the incident, but Krekeler said he had one request for them in a video clip shared on “Good Morning America.”

“If they have a son, name the son after me,” he said.
