A man lost his life as he was proposing to his girlfriend on a bridge.

The 32-year-old man fell to his death after proposing to his girlfriend on the bridge in Miyakojima, Japan, early Monday morning.

According to police reports, the incident occurred around 12:00 a.m., on Monday, at the Irabu Bridge. The man fell 30 meters into the sea.

The man was a passenger in the car driven by his girlfriend.
After parking on the side of the road near the center of the bridge, the two got out of the vehicle, and the man made his proposal.

After the woman said “yes,” the man suddenly slipped and fell off the bridge, police said.

The girlfriend called for help and emergency workers launched a search for the man. Seven hours later, at about 7:00 a.m., his body was recovered from the sea. He was taken to the hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
