Stephen Martin took his girlfriend, Christine Peters, on a dream trip in a balloon in Edmonton, Alberta.

He popped the question to his bride-to-be during the special ride with his mum's ruby ring. But as they were celebrating, things took a turn for the worse.

Ten people, including the couple, were on board as the balloon hit a tree about 25 feet off the ground, according to reports. See more in the video above.
