Received a call Monday evening from Eric stating he lost his wedding ring over the weekend. The ring came of his finger while playing volleyball in about 5 ft of water. He and his friends searched for two hours without any luck…
We made arrangements to meet Tuesday evening after work. He was headed to PA on Weds and then out of the country for several weeks.
It was a fairly small search, 15 x 15, in one corner of a roped off swimming area. After going over that area pretty well, for about an hour, we started to expand the search. Shortly after that, I had a good signal in roughly 4 feet of water. Using a homemade digging tool with a mesh bag attached, I raked the bottom and pulled it up out of the water. There in the bottom of the bag was a ring. I swung it over to him and asked him “What does that look like to you?
He didn’t see it at first, but when he did, he gave me a look of disbelief with a side of grin. He reached in, pulled it out, and promptly put it back on his finger.
I’m pretty sure he made a phone call to his wife shortly after we parted ways.
Eric, it was a pleasure meeting you and thanks for giving us a call. Tony
