An Idaho woman is flush with happiness after city workers found the $6,000 wedding ring she accidentally dropped in the toilet 18 months ago.
Municipal workers Travis Fleming and Carey Knight spotted the ring in a filter while cleaning a sewer line. They took it to the mayor's office and news of the ring's discovery quickly spread.
City Hall was flooded with calls from people across the country who claimed the ring belonged to them ... until Mechelle Rieger showed up with a photo of the seven-diamond ring and an appraisal from the jeweler who made it.
"I received a voice mail from a friend and I just started screaming in the car," Rieger said. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh that's my ring.'"
Rieger said the ring fell off a ledge in a restroom she was using and "plopped in the toilet right as the toilet was flushing."
We're sure she was bowled over by the discovery, especially since Mechelle and her husband will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversay in June.
