Then, it all came crashing down.

In the Dutch town of Ijsselstein, a man rented a crane with the plan of suspending himself in the air, surprising his girlfriend at her window and popping the question.

Unfortunately, the crane was never secured properly and it tipped over, smashing through a neighbor's house.

A second crane was dispatched hours later to right the first one, but the unbalanced crane tipped over again, causing further damage.

Luckily, no one was hurt in the accidents, although the residents of 32 homes were evacuated.

For reasons that weren't immediately clear, the woman said yes to the proposal, and the happy couple are celebrating in Paris.
