?火灾过后丈夫在废墟中发现婚戒,再次向妻子求婚 _双语新闻

LOS ANGELES — A Southern California couple who lost their home in a wildfire made a new happy memory on Sunday amid the ashes when they found what was left of the wife’s wedding and engagement rings.

一对来自南加州洛杉矶的夫妇在火灾中失去了家园,周日他们在灰烬中找到了结婚物品和订婚戒指,重新创造了幸福的回忆。

Ishu and Laura Rao, who got married only eight months ago, returned to the rubble of their home in Goleta in Santa Barbara County, to look for the rings. The house was incinerated in a fast-moving wildfire on Friday that destroyed nine other homes; the blaze was 80 percent contained on Sunday.

8个月前才结婚的伊蜀和劳拉.拉奥回到位于圣巴巴拉县戈勒塔的房子废墟中寻找戒指。这所房子在周五一场迅速蔓延的火灾中被烧成灰烬,火灾还烧毁了另外九所房屋;周日,火势已被控制住了80%。

Ishu Rao found the charred rings amid the ashes after figuring out where the kitchen sink was by looking for pipes.

伊蜀.拉奥顺着水管弄清楚厨房水槽的位置后,在灰烬中找到了这些烧焦的戒指。

Laura Rao takes the rings off at night and was getting ready for bed when the fire broke out, giving the couple just minutes to make it out alive with Ishu’s 12- and 14-year-old daughters, three dogs and a cat.

劳拉.拉奥晚上摘下戒指,火灾发生时她准备上床睡觉,这给了这对夫妇几分钟时间,让他们带着伊蜀12岁和14岁的女儿、3只狗和一只猫逃生。

When he found the rings, Ishu Rao said he decided to get down on one knee and ask his bride to marry him, again.

当他找到戒指时,伊蜀.拉奥说他决定单膝跪下,再次向他的新娘求婚。

“She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever known, she’s the glue in our family, and I adore her to pieces, so if I can put a smile on her face I’m going to do it,” said the 48-year-old.

48岁的伊蜀说:“她是我所认识的最漂亮的女人,她是我们家的粘合剂,我非常喜欢她,所以如果有能让她绽放笑容的事,我都会去做。”

The proposal had Laura Rao in tears — the good kind.

求婚让劳拉.拉奥流下了开心的泪水。

“It put everything into perspective,” the 39-year-old said. “It took all the pain away and reminded me of what matters in life: the people around you.”

39岁的劳拉说:“这让一切都变得明朗起来。它带走了所有的痛苦,让我想起了生活中最重要的东西:你身边的人。”

Mike Eliason, a spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, witnessed the tearful proposal, snapped a photo and shared it on Twitter.

圣芭芭拉县消防部门的发言人迈克.埃利亚松目睹了这场让人感动的求婚,并拍下一张照片在推特上分享了。

“It was truly a special moment out of the ashes,” he said.

他说:“这真是废墟中的一个特殊时刻。”

The photo shows Ishu Rao on one knee, putting the ring on his bride’s finger, their charred home in the background.

这张照片显示伊蜀.拉奥单膝跪地,将戒指戴在新娘的手指上,背景是他们烧焦的房子。

She said “Yes.”

她说:“我愿意。”
