A New Jersey woman has her wedding ring back, nine years after she accidentally flushed it down her toilet.
Paula Stanton was sure the diamond-encrusted gold ring was lost forever nearly a decade ago after she noticed it wasn't on her finger while she was cleaning her bathroom.
Luckily, a member of Somers Point's public works department three years ago remembered Stanton mentioning the ring.
Ted Gogol was doing maintenance work last month near a manhole, about 400 feet from Stanton's house, and he said he saw a shiny object sitting in the mud.
The ring turned out to be Stanton's, and after boiling it in peroxide and lemon juice, she is wearing it again.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
