...but maybe not the way most of us would prefer it!
What seemed like half the L.A. City Fire Department descended on the local park at dusk on Sunday. The reason was obvious to residents who have seen it all too often: someone took a dive off the cliffs. Again.
This time, according to sources at the scene, there was a twist. A man took his 50 year-old love to the park to propose marriage. Some say intoxicating beverages were consumed. To maximize the romance, he took her right to the edge of a pretty steep drop which leads -- after you do a bit of a high-wire balancing act around a fence -- to the famous/notorious "Sunken City."
Inevitably, she slipped. And took a header onto the rocks below. A Fire Department helicopter was called in and, after a paramedic was winched down to her, she was strapped to a litter and flown off to the local emergency hospital...
The wind from the helicopter's rotor set the basket to spinning (that's why it's blurred); I'm not sure the victim was in a position to complain at the moment.
Last word is that she received serious but not life-threatening injuries.
I wonder if the wedding is still on?
