DETROIT -

It was a proposal that was sky high above the rest ... quite literally.

Sterling Heights couple Robin and Ashley were in the middle of a sky dive Sunday when Robin popped the question.

Using text he had put on his sleeves, Robin spelled out “Ashley, I love you. Will you marry me?”

A friend filmed the whole thing and the video was posted on YouTube.

The couple told Local 4 they met skydiving and have been together for a year and a half. They are planning a wedding in August 2014.

Robin is a rescue swimmer with the U.S. Coast Guard and Ashley is a nursing student at Wayne State University.
