Woman Accidentally Swallows Ring During Marriage Proposal
Reed Harris wanted his girlfriend Kaitlin Whipple to have a memorable marriage proposal but he probably wasn't expecting a story neither of them will soon forget.
"I knew that he was proposing soon, I just had no clue when," Kaitlin tells Charleston, South Carolina's NBC affiliate, "but I did not expect what actually happened."
The couple joined friends for a shake after a class. Everyone except the bride-to-be was in on the plan to stash the ring in the milkshake.
So to encourage her to eat the ice cream faster, they challenged her to a race.
"I mean, I was taking huge bites and swallowing," says Kaitlin. "There was no tasting at all. I get to the end and everyone starts staring at me with this weird, worried look on their face, and I have no clue what is going on around me."
"Reed picks up my cup, looks in it, and of course it is empty. Then he starts looking all around me like he lost something."
"Then everyone starts digging in their cups and looking around them. I have no clue what is going on this whole time. Finally Reed gets up and tells me that he thinks I swallowed my ring."
Kaitlin had gulped down the shake so fast, that she never even felt it go down.
"I mean, it's not the smallest thing. I thought it was impossible for her to not feel it," says Reed. "Got an X-ray done, taken care of, and it was right there, just sitting there in her stomach."
"Everybody stocked me up on fiber and prune juice and everything we could think of, and pills just to make that thing come out!," says Kaitlin.
The ring "arrived" yesterday morning.
