Woman almost drowns when boyfriend proposes to her underwater

A woman almost drowned when her boyfriend proposed to her while they were scuba diving.

Stephanie Walker, 26, was so shocked when her boyfriend Anthony Taylor, 27, asked her to marry him that she gasped and let water into her mask.

Despite choking, the future bride from Wolverhampton was able to raise up a card saying yes after getting help from some instructors.

‘It was scary when the mask filled up with water but there were so many people around us it was over quickly,’ she said.

‘The instructors all seemed to know what they were doing, and slipped the ring to Anthony while they fixed my mask.’

The couple were cheered when they returned to the Marmaris resort in Turkey.

Mr Taylor admitted the underwater proposal was a last-minute decision.

He added: ‘I had bought the ring before we set off on holiday. And when I went to book the scuba diving trip, it got me thinking.’
