Workers dig through landfill to find woman’s lost wedding ring
Four Atlantic County Utilities Authority employees helped a New Jersey woman find her wedding ring after it was accidentally thrown away.
Ruth Watson's 10-year-old son thought he was being helpful when he threw a plastic bag out with the trash last Friday. However, inside that bag was Watson's wedding ring, wallet, and some other items.
By the time Watson realized the trash had already been collected, so she called the Atlantic County Utilities Authority and explained what the bag looked like and all that was inside.
Jovani Quiles, along with three workers, spent an hour-and-a-half searching the landfill until they found the bag.
Watson gave a shout-out to the workers on Facebook, thanking them. The group says they were happy they could help.
