A woman who survived a domestic violence attack in 2012 threw out the first pitch at the Rays game and was proposed to.
A woman who survived a brutal domestic violence attack three years ago threw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game on Monday and was proposed to by her boyfriend.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Melissa Dohme was stabbed 32 times outside her home in January 2012. One of the first responders on the scene was Cameron Hill, who found Dohme drenched in blood and aided her until a helicopter took her to the hospital.
Hill told the Times that he had a feeling in that moment that he would see her again, and later that year he and another first responder attended a speech she gave at a church. The two later began dating, with Hill proposing to her at the Rays game.
When Dohme went out to throw the pitch, Hill delivered the ball to her, which he had written "Will you marry me?" on. The proposal can be seen below.
