NEW YORK -- It's the proposal that almost wasn't.  This man pulled out all the stops to propose to his girlfriend, but when he pulled out the ring - it dropped.

The couple, Andrew and Heather, along with fans surrounding them looked for the ring. After a few minutes of searching, the bride-to-be found it in the cuff of her jeans.
