Two emergency medical workers in New York got engaged at Pride this weekend.

EMT Trudy Bermudez and paramedic Tayreen Bonilla both work at FDNY Station 43 in Brooklyn.

At the Pride parade on Sunday, they got engaged, and the crowd was living for it.

The FDNY even congratulated them on their official Twitter account.

This isn’t the first time the women have made headlines. Last year, a man named Ken Taskent had a heart attack at a classic car event in New York City. Bonilla and Bermudez helped save his life.

"There are not enough words I can say. I thank God these crews were there because now I have a second chance at life. I am an Auxiliary Police Officer at the 61st Precinct, so I work with the FDNY a lot. I always make it a point to thank them for what they do and I want them to know how I truly appreciate the work that they do,” says Ken Taskent, who was at a classic car event in Brooklyn when he had a seizure, stopped breathing and went into cardiac arrest. Thankfully for him, retired FDNY EMT Joey Rodriguez and FDNY Community Liaison Richard Velez are also classic car enthusiasts, and were at the same event. They recognized the severity of Mr. Taskent’s condition, began CPR, and called for additional FDNY members to help save his life. Paramedics, EMTs and the Captain of #Station43 were on scene in minutes and together these seven men and women worked as one and used all of their training to restore their patient’s circulation and get him to the hospital. Today, May 22, Mr. Taskent will reunite with the first responders who saved his life at the #FDNY Second Chance Ceremony in Brooklyn. #EMSWeek
