A man faked his own death in a motorcycle accident shortly before asking his distressed girlfriend to marry him.
The marriage proposal stunt staged by Philippino Jeffrey Delrio left his girlfriend Sheila Parayanon sobbing – and small wonder because it faked his death in a motorbike accident.
The bizarre proposal was captured on video by a friend who admitted it was “unusual”.
The footage shows Jeffrey Delrio lying on the road in South Cotabato in the Philippines while a traffic officer – who was part of the elaborate proposal – tells his girlfriend Shiela Parayanon to prepare for the worst.
As he lies ‘lifeless’ on the ground next to his motorcycle, his devastated girlfriend rushes to his side and breaks down in tears.
But shortly after playing dead, the man suddenly gets on his bended knee and pulls a red box containing an engagement ring from his pocket.
She is overcome and hugs a female traffic warden in relief before giving him a loving slap and answering: “YES!”
