It may have been April Fools' Day but a New York fire lieutenant wasn't joking around when he proposed to his firefighter girlfriend during a drill.


Members of an upstate New York fire department got together this week to hold a very special drill for one of their own.

On Monday volunteer firefighter and EMT Becca Pelletier was in full gear for her weekly training with the Barneveld Fire Department.

Pelletier was in for a big shock though when she finished the exercise and came out to find a surprise proposal from her boyfriend Lt. Kelby Ueltschi with the help of their fellow firefighters.

One managed to capture the moment on video and it's the sweetest thing we've seen all day.


The video begins as Pelletier is crawling out from underneath a door as she completed her mask confidence training drill.

Pelletier starts gathering gear when a voice off-screen shouts to her, when she looks up and sees what's happening Pelletier drops everything.

Behind two fellow fire fighters holding a hose with the message "Will you marry me?" her boyfriend Lt. Kelby Ueltschi is down on one knee holding out a ring.

Pelletier quickly sheds her gear and rushes over to him shouting "yes." The pair embrace as the rest of the team cheers on the newly engaged couple.

The video was later shared on Facebook where others joined in the celebration for the happy couple.

As far as proposals go people seemed to think Lt. Ueltschi had come up with a winner.

And based on Becca's reaction she thought so too.




The rest of the Barneveld department wished the couple well, saying they were glad to be apart of the moment.

"Our fire department is like a big family and we were excited that we could assist with the proposal. Congratulations and Best wishes to Becca and Lieutenant Kelby Ueltschi."

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Redditor u/nekoandCJ wanted to spill the tea on the characters we could do without in our favorite stories by asking:

People of reddit, what fictional character do you hate with a passion?

Modern medicine is a marvel. It's the reason why we've been able to effectively eradicate some serious diseases and improve the quality of health care around the world. When you take these two things into consideration, it's easy to see why vaccine hesitancy can be such a frustrating topic for people right now.

Many people would not be able to survive without the benefits of modern medicine. That's what we learned after Redditor forevernostalgic23 asked the online community,

"If modern medicine didn't exist what medical condition would have died from or been severely impacted by?"
