In January 2012, EMTs in Clearwater, Florida, responded to the scene of a brutal attack. The victim, Melissa Dohme, had been stabbed over 30 times by her ex-boyfriend.
One of the first responders was named Cameron Hill. He told the Tampa Bay Times that Dohme was so covered in blood you "couldn't tell she was blond." Dohme flat-lined four times in the hospital, but survived the attack.
Dohme has since become a domestic violence advocate for a local nonprofit, and has turned the Facebook page her sister created after she was attacked into a page for raising awareness.
In 2012, Dohme was giving a talk at a church when she was surprised by two of the first responders who saved her life, one of whom was Hill. The couple felt a spark and agreed to meet up, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
They soon started dating. "It's my real-life fairy-tale and it feels like I am living in a dream," Dohme said on Facebook about her relationship.
On Monday, Dohme was asked to throw out the first pitch for a Tampa Bay Rays game to recognize her advocacy work. Little did she know, she was about to get a big surprise.
On the ball, Hill had written "Will You Marry Me."
"So surprised, so in love, and I just feel like I am floating on a cloud," she said.
