A man in Rhode Island wanted to find a romantic way to propose marriage to his sweetie, so he hires a pilot to carry a banner over her home. It didn't quite work out.

The plane towing the banner crashed off Rhode Island's Block Island. The pilot was forced to ditch the small plane, and his 8-year-old son helped rescuers find him.  The Coast Guard found the pilot after the man radioed his son saying he was going down.  Luckily, the pilot is expected to be ok.
