Joan Sawyer

Recently, we told you about a man who accidentally threw his wife’s $10,000 engagement ring in the trash. Well, as unlikely as it seems, an elderly woman in Massachusetts recently lost a piece of jewelry the same way.

Joan Sawyer of Bedford, NY found herself in a predicament when she accidentally threw her family heirloom diamond ring away in the trash. After making a panicked call to her local sanitation department, Sawyer and her husband then waited nervously as workers sifted through 10 tons of trash in search of the ring.

Was the ring recovered or was the heirloom lost forever? Watch the video to find out.
