John Dardis had planned a romantic weekend away with his girlfriend Suzannah Newham in Cornwall, England. What's more, he was going to propose as they walked along the cliffs. When he went to kneel down, however, he slipped on wet ground and broke his ankle.
The coastguard had to be called to come rescue John, but he was of sane mind enough to realize even with a broken ankle, the cliff was more romantic than a hospital room.
As the Newquay Coastguard put it, John literally fell for her. The feeling is mutual- Suzannah said yes. “It was an unfortunate accident but John was very stoic," Regie Butler, Newquay Coastguard rescue officer, adds. “The best man’s got the best speech to give now.”
