Jan. 25 (UPI) -- A New Hampshire septic company found a wedding ring while cleaning out a truck and was able to return the beloved item to its relieved owner.
Rowell's Services, based in Northfield, said employees were cleaning out a truck earlier in January when they found a wedding ring that had somehow ended up among the sewage. Officials said the wedding ring was the second such discovery in the past four years.
The ring ended up the subject of a WMUR-TV news broadcast, which came to the attention of Andrew Wu, a surgeon at Catholic Medical Center, whose wedding ring went missing in December.
"I knew I went to work with my ring, and I take my ring off all the time, probably a bad habit when I change clothes and scrubs," Wu told the station. "But then I went home without it, so I knew I had lost it and of course it was frustrating."
Rowell's Services co-owner Mandie Hagan had the ring cleaned and shined before returning it to Wu.
Wu said he now has a $5 ring that he wears to work to keep the more expensive band safe.
