NEW YORK (AP) — Talk about a memorable trip to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The New York Police Department says an officer who was shot on duty last year proposed to his girlfriend at Thursday's parade. And, the NYPD said in a tweet, "She said yes!!!"
The department tweeted a photo of the happy moment, which unfolded in front of the NYPD band. The Daily News first reported on the tweet and says Officer Andrew Dossi's family confirmed he'd proposed.
Dossi was shot in the elbow and back while responding to a holdup at a Bronx grocery store in January 2015. A fellow officer, Aliro Pellarano, was shot in the arm and chest during the same encounter.
The suspected gunman has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.
