(WDAY TV) - A romantic proposal went all wrong in Massachusetts.

Matt Cawley thought he had the perfect plan to pop the question to his girlfriend Stacy Scanlon. That included a family heirloom, a 1-carat ring.

But during their walk on a rock jettie, the ring fell into the rocks. It's valued at 9-thousand dollars.

Anyone who heard what happened volunteered to help. People were moving rocks, ropes were involved. There was talk of dynamite and cranes. That was before the tide came in.

Matt eventually proposed in the back of a Mazda. Another ring is on order and the family heirloom was insured. Wedding plans do not include a rock jettie.
