Two boyfriends have been the protagonists of a bad misadventure
The two had climbed an Austrian mountain
In that fairytale setting, he made his marriage proposal to her
She, excited, said yes
But then she fell 200 meters
He too, in an attempt to catch her, fell 15 meters
Fortunately the snow saved both of them
The story has a happy ending, at least as regards the physical safety of the two unfortunate protagonists. We wonder, however, if their firm resolve to get married was not questioned by such a clear sign of fate. We are talking about an Austrian couple, 32 years old and 27 years old, who one day decided to venture up a snowy mountain with snowshoes.
Arriving at a strategic and particularly romantic point, he knelt in the white mantle and asked the fateful question: "My love, my love, do you want to marry?". She, all excited, said yes, with red cheeks from the cold and happiness. Then she… fell a good 200 meters from the rocky spur she was standing on. He, terrified, leaned over to stop her fall, only getting to fall in turn.
The fall of 200 meters and the saving snow
The woman had landed on a nice pile of snow, so luckily nothing was done. Except that she lost consciousness and it was a passing man who found her who lived in a shed not far from the accident site. As for the romantic boyfriend, he fell 15 meters and managed to stop her tumble by clinging to a rock. Rescuers by helicopter took him to the hospital.
Here he was diagnosed with a fractured vertebra and an acute form of lethal romance. The doctors, in addition to prescribing rest and drugs, also advised to choose other alternative locations to the mountains for the wedding. Admitted and not granted that they are celebrated: who knows that in the end, during those 200 meters of flight, she did not think about it.
