Woman Loses Ring — Finds It at a Waste Plant [Video]

A Bedford, Massachusetts, woman who accidentally threw out an heirloom diamond ring helped workers find the jewelry at a waste-to-energy plant. Joan Sawyer said the ring, which belonged to her late great-aunt, was wrapped in a paper towel when she mistakenly threw it away November 8th. She did not realize she had disposed of the ring until after the weekly garbage pickup the following day. Sawyer called the Department of Public Works, which told her to contact Allied Waste Services. The trash company told her the garbage had been taken to an incinerator, where she and her husband met workers and searched through 10 tons of trash to find the ring. Sawyer said she recognized some of her trash and the ring was in the first paper towel her husband picked up when the bag split open. For the complete story go here.

This tune has nothing to do with the story but we are supposed to load videos. So here you go.
