"This can't be happening": Groom drops wedding ring in worst possible place
Andrew and Marlene Kent’s nuptials did not go as planned after their wedding ring fumbled into Lake Tahoe, USA.
What should have been a scenic ceremony turned into horror after the groom accidentally dropped his wife’s ring through a gap in the pier on Sugar Pine Beach.
"Honestly, I thought, this can't be happening. Like that didn't just happen," Marlee said.
Andrew added, "Like what are the chances?"
The couple in love were soon on their knees searching for their ring in the clear Tahoe water.
"My first thought was like how deep is it, how cold is it?" Andrew said.
The couple quickly turned to a Tahoe scuba diving Facebook group after a pastor convinced the pair not to jump for it.
Outdoor adventurer Phill Abernathy answered the call, saying: "The water was 41 degrees [farenheit; roughly 5°C], dry suit was needed.”
He went on to say: "We start to move some of the little rocks out of the way and obviously as we start to move them some silt starts to form.”
Phill eventually found the ring tucked away in some rocks and revealed that he even had to fight off a crawdad to get it.
"I'm so thankful to have my ring back but either way it's a great story to tell our kids one day," Marlee said.
