VIDEO: Wounded Philly Officer Throws Out First Pitch, Proposes to Girlfriend at Phillies Game

A Philadelphia police officer who was shot and wounded during an ambush in January in West Philadelphia made the most of his moment in the limelight Monday before the Phillies home opener.

The Opening Day crowd at Citizens Bank Park roared as Officer Jesse Hartnett threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

But then came a surprise.

The officer whose left arm was shattered by three bullets in January got down on one knee near the third base line and asked his girlfriend Lily to marry him. She said "yes," CBS Local reports.
