  • Firefighter uses ladder truck for marriage proposal

    The Daily News of Los Angeles
    June 19, 2003 Thursday, Valley Edition

    Megan Porco was having a quiet lunch with her parents on the second-floor
    patio of Spazio restaurant in Sherman Oaks on Wednesday when a firetruck pulled
    into the parking lot.
    The 100-foot aerial ladder extended right up to her table, and her boyfriend,
    Lee Castillo, a two-year veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department, climbed
    up, bearing a dozen red roses.


    Castillo leaped onto the balcony, and in front of startled and delighted
    diners, got down on one knee.
    "I want to spend the rest of my life with you," he said to his astounded
    girlfriend. "I love you. Will you marry me?"

    Porco, 23, shaking and wiping away tears of joy, said yes, and Castillo
    placed a half-carat princess-cut diamond ring on her finger.

    "I wanted to make it special for her," said Castillo, 26, of Panorama City,
    who had donned his dress uniform for the occasion.

    Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said Wednesday was Castillo's day
    off, but his fellow firefighters from Station 88 were on duty and considered to
    be on routine patrol when they stopped briefly at the restaurant.

    "In terms of his planned 30-year career as an LA City firefighter, this is
    truly a once-in-a-lifetime event," Humphrey said
