A northeastern Connecticut boarding school student has videotaped himself asking his girlfriend to go to prom with him while jumping out of an airplane.

WVIT-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1JF3sFC ) Pomfret School student Eddie Staten saw people skydiving on his way back from Easter vacation and decided that's how he would ask his girlfriend of about two years to prom.

Staten jumped out of the plane this month giving the camera a thumbs up in one hand and holding the sign asking Talia Guilino to prom in the other. He says she has agreed to go.

The Skydive Danielson company says this was the second skydiving promposal it has helped with this year. The video was posted online May 3.
