A video that Darien Firefighter Will Cornacchia uploaded to YouTube shows him asking Brittany Tiano to the prom:
"Is it yes?" he shouts from the bucket of the Engine 3 ladder truck.
"Yes!" she shouts back.
"Nice," someone says. "Did you think she was gonna say no?"
Cornacchia is asked if the adventure was "as good as you imagined it?"
"Better," he says.
After the bucket descended to the ground, Cornacchia asked Tiano, "You didn't expect that, right?"
"No, not at all."
"It's going on YouTube," he told her.
Later, another Darien High School student tells Cornacchia, "You just set the bar, like, above everyone else's head."
