NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Being the assistant district attorney for Metro Nashville, Debbie Housil is used to being in the headlines, but it's usually for the cases she's trying -- not for what happens on her vacation.

Housil's boyfriend Bart Butler popped the question while on a Scuba diving trip in Roatan, Honduras.

The couple was 40 feet under water when Butler proposed. Housil said yes!

"The flood of emotions were just all over the place," she said. "Plus I'm 40 feet under water so I've got to concentrate on breathing and making sure I'm not holding my breath or start crying and remain calm."

Housil is a relatively new diver and said the trip was her first ocean dive.
