Tears weren't the only thing falling during this proposal.

Isaiah Adams recently popped the question to his girlfriend, Grace, at a Maryland waterfall. Romantic? Certainly. Terrible idea? In hindsight, definitely.

As Isaiah gave her the ring, they fumbled with the bauble and it winds up in the water, never to be found.

“I was crying with happiness but then I was crying with fear at the same time," Grace told Inside Edition. "I looked up and his face was just shock." You can't blame him, can you? He probably socked away a few months' salary only to see the fruits of his labor to go swimming downstream like a salmon.

A proposal hasn't gone this awry since this Yankees fan nearly botched it when he got on bended knee.

While a snafu of this magnitude could lead to a breakup, these two lovebirds still plan to tie the knot.

You can see the entire horrifying episode unfold below.
