A man rented a crane hoping to propose to his girlfriend in a grand way, but things didn’t turn out so well.

According to BBC News, the man was going to use the crane to descend in front of his girlfriend’s bedroom window, serenade her and then pop the question.

His plan backfired, however, when the unsecured crane he was using toppled over and smashed into a neighbor’s roof.

More damage was done when the crane fell again during a second attempt.

Nearby residents were evacuated, but no one was hurt in the botched stunt.

By the way, the woman said “yes” anyway.
