Woman Stabbed 32 Times Accepts Marriage Proposal From The Man Who Saved Her Life

Three years ago, Melissa Dohme lay on the pavement in front of her Florida home, soaked in blood. She had been stabbed 32 times by her ex-boyfriend.

One of the first responders who arrived on the scene was Cameron Hill, a firefighter and paramedic. ”It was so bad,” Hill recalled in 2013, “you couldn’t tell she was blond.”

He helped load Dohme onto a helicopter, and then, he said, he felt a “sixth sense.” He knew it wouldn’t be the last he saw her.

Monday night, he proposed to her at the pitcher’s mound at a Tampa Bay Rays game.

Dohme, now an advocate for survivors of domestic abuse, was preparing to throw out the first pitch when out ran a man to hand her the ball. It said in ink: “Will you marry me?” Hill got down on one knee and opened up a small box.

She said yes, they kissed — and then she threw the pitch to her new fiancé.
