It could have been the fact that it was freezing outside or maybe jus
t a case of the jitters. Regardless of the reason, Travis Pittman, a producer for KING 5 News station, popped the question to his girlfriend during a trip to the Washington Pier close to the Des Moines Marina last Saturday evening.
The setting was beautiful and everything was going well until he, on accident, lost the ring by dropping it into the Puget Sound.
The classic diamond ring was a half-carat on a white gold band with small diamonds inlaid into the band. At first, he tried to tell his bride to be, Kim Hopper, that he wanted to get married but did not have enough money to buy her the perfect diamond ring. He then proposed and presented her with the beautiful diamond ring. It did not take her long to say yes to his proposal. As he was slipping the ring onto her finger it came off and fell into the water.
Pittman is hoping that the ring is found safely and returned to him.
