PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A Pittsburgh couple made the ride of a lifetime up the Duquesne Incline over the weekend.

Courtney Brownlee thought her Saturday ride up to Mt. Washington would be like any other trip, but boyfriend Don Lippert made sure it was a trip to cherish forever.

Brownlee says they were on their way up to Mt. Washington when Lippert got down on one knee and proposed to her.

The act not only surprised Courtney, but also surprised the strangers in the car with them who started snapping pictures.

“They started cheering when I said yes, in true Pittsburgh spirit,” Courtney tells KDKA.
