Lost Ring Elk City, Nebraska

  • from Omaha (Nebraska, United States)

Ring was lost nearly 5 years ago (2009) while owner was showing gymnastic like skills going down the slide of a bounce house.   During the landing of a near perfect forward roll with a 1/2 twist the ring flew off.  The bouncy house was scoured by all the other 3-4 year old participants with no luck.  It was presumed that the ring made it through the opening of the protective netting where the adults continued the search with no luck.  Who could figure that nearly 5 years later a co-worker would offer to look for the long lost ring.    It was a pretty well defined area with not a lot of trash, search only took about 20 minutes.  Ring was found about 2 inches under the grass.
