Plumber Pulls $10K Wedding Ring From Bathroom Pipes

Every time a certain Pennsylvania woman gazes at her $10,000 wedding ring, she’ll think of her plumber, who managed to scavenge it out of oblivion after she accidentally flushed down the toilet.

ABC 7 Los Angeles reports the woman called the plumber after she disposed of the ring while half asleep.

The hero provides play-by-play:

“Stuck the Shop-Vac down. It’s about four-feet deep. Sucked it all out. After all the water was drained out, unplugged the Shop-Vac, took off the lid, dumped the water out and there was the ring.”

If you’ve ever lost something valuable down the drain, how were you able to retrieve it?
