‘Good Morning America’ reported on a Florida deputy sheriff who found a unique way to propose marriage to his girlfriend — over police radio.

Deputy Joseph Bracey proposed to Ashley West, who works as a Brevard County sheriff dispatcher, over a county-wide police channel. “I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” he asked.

An awkward, but fortunately brief, moment of stunned silence followed before West finally accepted.
