London, Sep 8 (ANI): A marriage proposal literally swept a woman off her feet when she fell off a cliff just after her man popped the question.

According to rescue officials, soon after the woman accepted the marriage proposal during an outing along the rugged Billy Goat Trail in Maryland, she slipped and fell about 10 feet down a rock face and had to be rescued by helicopter.

The woman briefly lost consciousness, but her injuries were not life threatening, reports the Telegraph.

The Great Falls of the Potomac River are a popular destination for hikers in the suburbs of Washington.

The Billy Goat Trail, on the Maryland side, is well known by walkers, but it is rocky and rough.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Assistant Chief Scott Graham of the Montgomery County fire department joked that it must have been "a heck of a proposal."

Authorities did not identify the woman or her fiance, citing laws governing the privacy of medical records. (ANI)
