Man finds lost ring af­ter 6 months

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

WELLING­TON: A New Zealand man who promised his wife he would find his wed­ding ring af­ter it fell into the cap­i­tal’s murky har­bour has been suc­cess­ful, 16 months later.

Ecol­o­gist Aleki Tau­moe­peau tossed an an­chor over­board to mark the spot where his ring fell into Welling­ton har­bour and pledged to his wife of three months that he would find it.

An ini­tial search three months later failed. He re­tur ned again re­cently for an­other dive, risk­ing chill mid­win­ter tem­per­a­tures.

“I was get­ting cold and tired so I said to God it would be re­ally good to find the ring about now,” he said.

And then he spot­ted the an­chor – with the ring ly­ing just inches away. – Sa­paAP
