The man had wanted to surprise his partner by being lowered in front of her bedroom in the town of IJsselstein to sing her a song and pop the question, but the unsecured crane instead toppled into a neighbour’s house.

During the attempt to right it, the crane unfortunately slipped and fell on the house again, reports the Guardian. Thnkfully no-one was hurt.

Despite the fiasco, his girlfriend accepted the marriage proposal, Dutch media reported, and the couple have gone on holiday in Paris.
