NJ Man Fakes An Allergic Reaction to Propose to Nurse Girlfriend
A New Jersey man from Monmouth County totally faked a peanut allergy to propose to his girlfriend.
Even though it was absolutely traumatic, she still said yes!
Lauren Trulli, a nurse at Monmouth Medical Center, pretty much reacted as any nurse would when she saw a man being carried out of an ambulance on a stretcher into the ER where she works. She quickly realized the man being carried out, was her boyfriend Tom Ciancia--who does in fact have a peanut allergy.
Thinking he was having a serious reaction, she ran to be by his side, only to watch in shock as he got down on one knee.
Tom also works as a nurse at the Hospital, where he convinced staff to help him execute his plan.
According to Inside Edition, Tom said:
I was so nervous. Imagine if she said no in front of all of our co-workers.
AWKWARD. And dramatic...yet cute.
