KATHIE J;S STUPID NEWS - SCUBA PROPOSAL ALMOST GOES BAD

SHE ALMOST DROWNED!

Back in August, a guy from England named Anthony Taylor was on vacation in Turkey with his girlfriend Stephanie. And he decided to propose during their very first SCUBA DIVING lesson.

He did it by having one of the instructors hand him a sign while they were 40 feet underwater that said, "Will you marry me?" But when he held it up, Stephanie was so surprised that she GASPED, which caused her whole MASK to fill up with water.

Luckily, an instructor was able to clear the water so she could breathe again, and she eventually said yes. There's a video of the whole ordeal online.

Anthony says his original idea was either to propose at a nice restaurant or on the beach . . . but then he decided to get creative. Their wedding is set for September of next year.

Also, Stephanie recently WON her dream wedding dress . . . in a contest for best proposal story.
