A man has faked his own death in a motorcycle accident shortly before ‘coming back to life’ to ask his distraught girlfriend to marry him in a bizarre proposal.

Footage taken on September 30 shows Jeffrey Delrio lying on the road in South Cotabato in the Philippines while a traffic officer – who was part of the elaborate proposal – tells his girlfriend Shiela Parayanon to prepare for the worst.

As he lies ‘lifeless’ on the ground next to his motorcycle, his devastated girlfriend rushes to his side and breaks down in tears.

But shortly after playing dead, the man suddenly gets on his bended knee and pulls a red box containing an engagement ring from his pocket.

He then asks his distressed girlfriend to marry him – and she says ‘yes’.

Clearly shocked by the outcome, the girlfriend turns to a female officer and hugs her while crying with relief.

As the crowd cheers, Ms Parayanon can be seen giving her boyfriend a playful slap on his arm before accepting his proposal.
