If the pressure of proposing wasn’t already enough, one man decided to add a little more stress and pop the question while surrounded by sharks.

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico -

If the pressure of proposing wasn’t already enough, one man decided to add a little more stress and pop the question while surrounded by sharks.

Michael Benson told Yahoo! News he planned for months before proposing to his girlfriend while on vacation in Mexico.

The couple was swimming with bull sharks when Benson pulled out an underwater writing board, wrote the all-important question and handed the board to his girlfriend.

She initially gave the OK sign with her hands before grabbing the board and writing “Yes!”

Benson recorded the unique underwater proposal and shared the video on YouTube.

Benson told Yahoo! News he didn’t bring the ring underwater because he didn’t want it to reflect light and attract the sharks. Instead, he left it on the boat and gave it to his girlfriend when they resurfaced.
