WATCH: Man drops engagement ring in the ocean, retrieves it before it could sink

There are men who would go to great lengths to plan and execute the perfect proposal to the women of their dreams.

A man in Florida went through the same experience, only it was taken a tad bit literally as he dove deep into the ocean to retrieve an engagement ring that he dropped, just when he was about to pop the question to the love of his life.

In a video shared by Scott Clyne on his Facebook, he and his soon-to-be-wife Suzie Tucker were in the perfect proposal scenario. They were standing on a boat with a romantic ocean view, and all that was left was for Clyne to kneel down and present the ring.

But everything went wrong as the engagement ring fumbled out of his pocket and plunged into the waters of Sarasota, Florida. 

Wasting no time, he immediately dove into the ocean to retrieve it. He emerged shortly after, having successfully recovered the expensive and special jewelry, much to the amusement of his fiancé.

Clyne's friends on the boat captured the hilariously unforgettable moment before they helped him back onto the boat. With the ring tightly grasped in his hand this time, Clyne was finally able to continue with his proposal. 

Though the video has no audio, Tucker appeared to have said yes to becoming Clyne's one and only as they shared a romantic kiss on the boat.

"This is 100% real, 100% my luck, 100% will never forget," Clyne captioned in his post. If you check out his profile, you'll also notice that he changed his picture into a hilarious snap of him jumping into the water for the ring with only his feet visible on the surface.

In a report by Daily Mail carried by PEOPLE, Clyne told the news outlet that the ring caught the top of his pocket, causing it to slip out of his hands.

"Everything was a blur after that. I panicked and reacted by lunging for the ring box before it could sink, not caring if I fell into the water. Luckily, I was able to recover the ring," he said.
