Crane destroys home during proposal

A Dutchman’s proposal attempt ended badly when he managed to destroy a house!

The man hired a crane to lower him over his girlfriend’s house and into her garden where he planned to propose after his unique entry, however things went wrong when the crane fell through a neighbour’s roof.

The man jumped to safety and fortunately no one was hurt in the accident. The nearby houses were evacuated but whilst trying to remove the crane, it slipped and once again fell onto the damaged house.

The owners were shocked at the incident and are awaiting the decision from authorities as to whether their house will need to be demolished after the crane is removed.

It wasn’t a complete disaster however, the girlfriend said yes!!
