The hero Philly cop who survived an ambush attack earlier this year by an allegedly ISIS-inspired gunmanblew away Phillies fans at Monday’s home opener when he threw the game’s opening pitch — then turned around and proposed to his girlfriend.
The lucky lady, who was not identified, accepted Officer Jesse Hartnett’s proposal as crowds cheered.
Hartnett, 33, is still undergoing medical procedures for the three slugs he took to the left arm when Edward Archer, ambushed him with a handgun on Jan. 7 and fired at him 11 times, police said.
Archer is charged with attempted murder. Investigators said while Archer claimed he was inspired by ISIS, he had no formal ties to the organization.
Fans gushed on social media after watching the hero cop propose.
