Brit fan flies to NYC to propose at 'Ghostbusters' firehouse

NEW YORK (AP) — A British man flew his girlfriend all the way across the pond to New York City so he could propose to her at the firehouse used in the "Ghostbusters" franchise.

Wearing a hard hat and safety vest, Giles Baugh dropped to one knee at Ladder 8 in Tribeca and asked Melissa Ward to marry him.

Ward, who says she's learned to embrace Baugh's "Ghostbusters" fandom, happily agreed.

The New York Daily News reports (http://nydn.us/2hlNHPK ) the proposal took several months of planning.

A city employee convinced the FDNY to go along with Baugh's stunt so long as the proper safety precautions were taken. The 1903 firehouse is currently undergoing a $6.5 million renovation.

Baugh says he can recite his favorite scenes from the 1984 movie verbatim.
