GoPro captures marriage proposal 10,000 feet above the Earth

Brandon Strohbehn proposes to his girlfriend while skydiving 10,000 feet above the planet's surface and uses a GoPro camera to capture the moment.

It's hard enough to look like a fool getting down on one knee to give an engagement ring to the one you love, so doing so while free-falling from 10,000 feet in the air must be terrifying.

But that's what skydiver Brandon Strohbehn did recently, proposing to his girlfriend while skydiving over sunny San Diego, Calif.

Strohbehn captured the proposal with a GoPro Hero 3+ camera so he and now-fiancee Nicole Nepomuceno can relive the adrenaline-filled moment any time they please. And what a crazy moment it was, as just after Strohbehn showed her the ring, he sent her plunging to the Earth below, though she thankfully caught her breath enough to open her parachute.

And, more importantly, he managed to not drop the ring. I imagine it would be even more difficult to track down a lost engagement ring than it would be to find Carmen Sandiego in America's Finest City.

The video was posted Thursday on GoPro's YouTube channel.
