Man cheats death at 10,000 feet for most intense promposal ever

Love should make your cheeks flap. That’s what Connecticut high school student Eddie Staten just proved:

Staten pulled off what is likely the best promposal ever by jumping out of an airplane to ask his girlfriend Talia to prom. He holds a sign that simply reads “Talia—prom?” before intentionally flinging himself into the sky from 10,000 feet.

Talia, who has been dating Staten for two years, said yes. I mean, how could she say anything else?

Here’s the complete video of Staten going the distance:
