To propose, man buries - then loses- wedding ring

Every wedding proposal comes with a little bit of nervous energy. This one came with lots of it.

Steve Carr planned what he thought would be the ideal engagement to his girlfriend on the beach in Naples, Florida. To build suspense, he buried the ring in the sand...

And you might guess what happened next. The moment of panic turned into hours of digging.

Just before giving up, in the pouring rain, Steve and his beloved Mary called a specialist, who with a little more persistence, actually found the ring.

At this point you might be thinking Steve is no rocket scientist. And you'd be right. He's actually a brain surgeon.

Mary, for the record, found it all kind of funny in hindsight, and said "Yes."
