POMFRET,CT (WFSB) -

A student in northeast Connecticut videotaped himself asking his girlfriend to go to prom with him — while jumping out of an airplane.

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 giving the camera a thumbs up in one hand and holding the sign asking Talia Guilino to prom in the other.

Staten says she has since agreed to go.

This was the second skydiving "promposal" the company has helped with.
