Turn On the Waterworks: Firefighter Pops the Question to Teacher Girlfriend In Most Memorable Way [VIDEO]

Awww. Viral marriage proposal videos always manage to melt NMR’s dark, cold heart, and this latest one is no different. Racking up nearly 600,00 views since its upload March 24, “Fire Drill Engagement” features Greentown firefighter Justin Deierling, 31, proposing to his girlfriend Megan Zahorec, 27, in front of the elementary school she teaches at during a fire drill. The surprise proposal comes complete with a cheesy country music ballad, crying teachers and cheering students.

On why he chose to surprise his girlfriend the way he did:

“Megan has changed my life in the best way. I wanted to do something super special for her. We met on this date 6 months ago while I was volunteering for my FD passing out water to the students participating in a walkathon. I instantly knew she was someone special. I knew how much she loves her job and the kids at Greentown and wanted to include them as well as the place we met. I thought what better to do this than a fire drill. It was a great successes. All the kids got rings too (ring pops) afterwards. Such a great day!!”

(Sobbing) When will NMR find true love? After all, our friend with benefits relationship with John Basedow can only be so fulfilling …
