A Florida man has recovered his wife’s $10k engagement ring after he had accidentally tossed it out with the garbage. Brian McGuinn had to wade through a mountain of garbage to find the ring.
The 34-year-old realised he had accidentally thrown the ring out shortly after the garbage had been collected. At the local landfill, workers showed him roughly where his garbage had been dumped. And luckily, it took only 30 minutes before he spotted the ring in the grime.
McGuinn says the smell was pretty horrendous, and that he found plenty of unsanitary items as he waded through the garbage. Considering how small a ring is, it’s something of a miracle that he found it at all.
