Romantic Gesture Ends in Disaster

Romantic Gesture Ends in Disaster

A man’s attempt at a romantic gesture to celebrate his wife’s 51st birthday on Saturday ended in tragedy when he fell to his death from a cliff in Utah.

The Garfield County Sheriff’s Office told FOX13 Dee Jessop, 51, was attempting to climb a cliff in Circleville Canyon in the southern part of the state and planned to use a bow to fire “a lighted arrow into a painted heart.”

His brother told the Salt Lake Tribune the plan was to shoot the arrow toward the ground, where it would ignite 51 candles in the shape of a heart.

“They were lighting these fire arrows and kind of making it a surprise,” Willie Jessop told the newspaper, “but because it was late at night, it appears he lost his footing and slipped.”
