UK couple to get back lost engagement ring thanks to NYPD

A UK couple who lost an engagement ring down a New York sewer grate is getting it back thanks to the NYPD.


NSFW    NEW YORK CITY — The NYPD went the extra mile, in this case below ground, to find an engagement ring that accidentally fell down a sewer grate.

According to the New York Times, UK-based lovebirds John Drennan and Daniella Anthony had just gotten engaged in Central Park on Friday when disaster struck just a few hours later.

While strolling around Times Square later that night, Anthony's diamond ring slipped off her finger and fell straight into a sidewalk grate.

The unlucky couple tried to get back the ring on their own before asking some officers for help. But when it still hadn't been found an hour later, they left without leaving their names.

Two cops returned the next morning, descending into the muck below to continue the search. It didn't take long before they spotted the glittering rock.

NYPD turned to Twitter to help find the couple, who by then had gone back home to the UK and even gotten a replacement ring. By Sunday, New York's finest announced that they'd found the pair, and are making arrangements to reunite them with their ring.

Seeing as how New York City sewer grates are a graveyard of lost items, it's a miracle and a half that this couple got their ring back. Definitely a story to tell the grandkids.
