The said proposal reportedly took place on a 30m-high glass bridge in Xinmi, Henan on 15 August. 

23-year-old Xiao Jing, who comes from a really wealthy family, proposed to her long-time boyfriend Xiao Yu, also 23, with an SUV and 1,000,000 yuan (about RM597,000)

To attain all of that, all Xiao Yu needed to do was to take a short stroll on the bridge to reach Xiao Jing – but his fear of heights proved too much to handle

According to Sing Tao Daily, Xiao Jing is the only daughter and her family had been rushing her to get hitched. 

While some said the entire thing looked staged, a spokesperson said it is common for proposals to take place on the bridge

We're not sure if the couple burned bridges after the event.
