Try and put yourself in this situation: you and your significant other are on a plane, the plane starts to dive, everybody around you is horrified, and you turn to your girlfriend and ask her to marry you.
Kind of hard to imagine. I wouldn’t be thinking of anything else in that moment besides “AHHHHHHH!!!!!!”
Chris Jeanes of London showed an incredible amount of bravery, courage, self-restraint, selflessness… these are just the things off the top of my head, I’m sure there are dozens of other adjectives that describe this guy.
He was thinking of the love of this life, his girlfriend, Casey Kinchella, when their AirAsia flight dropped more than 20,000 feet in just a matter of minutes.
Despite the potential imminent death, Chris asked Casey to marry him. By the grace of God, the plane was able to regain control and they landed safely. Nobody was injured.
Chris was serious about the proposal and Casey accepted. Now if that is not a hell of a story to tell the kids, I don’t know what is.
