The man was rescued by a helicopter crew and was immediately taken to a hospital. He has been diagnosed with a vertebrate fracture.

“The two were extremely lucky. He flew 15 meters through the air. The woman fell 200 meters over rocky terrain. Had it not been for snow, it would have turned out very differently,” an officer at the scene reportedly said.

This is not the first time that a romantic proposal ended in disaster. Last year in September, a man’s marriage proposal was ruined by a runaway boat that sent him tumbling into the water.
