New York, Feb 22 (ANI): A plumber rescued a 10,000-dollar wedding ring from the sewer line after a Pennsylvania woman accidentally flushed it down the toilet.

According to KABC-TV, Kristen Kalis of Cranberry Township, Pa., was horrified when she realized she’d flushed the ring early in the morning, reports the New York Daily News.

Worst of all, she couldn’t find one plumber who was willing to take on the case - they all told her the ring was gone for good.

Finally, Kalis spoke to Steve from Mister Rooter who was willing to try and retrieve the ring.

When snaking a camera down the sewer line didn’t work, he wasn’t deterred.

“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,” Steve told KABC.

He said this was the first diamond ring he’d ever found while working in the sewer line.

Kalis was grateful to Steve, to say the least.

“I’m like screaming and yelling outside. I’m hugging him. I’m telling him that I love him. I was just so, so happy,” Kalis said. (ANI)
