Watch: Photographer Hit by Cyclist While Shooting Proposal on Brooklyn Bridge


A surprise proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge went viral this past weekend, but not for the reasons you might think. The photographer on hand to capture the special moment kind of upstaged the couple when he got run over by a cyclist just as the bride-to-be was about to say “yes.”

The incident took place just as Chris Vigo had gotten down on one knee, in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge, to propose to his girlfriend Angelina Rivera. But just as he’s about to pop the question, their friend and on-hand photographer Joshua made a crucial error: he stepped into the middle of the bike lane just as two cyclists were attempting to get by.

You can probably guess what happened next. If not, you can watch the whole thing for yourself in the Inside Edition report above—including an interview with the happy couple after the fact.

Fortunately, it seems everyone (and all of the gear) escaped the incident unscathed. And, to Vigo’s credit, even while checking that everyone was okay he never let go of Rivera’s hand, and ultimately got the “Yes” he was hoping for.
