Volunteers sift trash to find ring

A diamond engagement ring accidentally thrown in a garbage dumpster by a bride-to-be was recovered days after haredi Orthodox volunteers sifted through tons of garbage.

An elderly Jerusalem man came forward with the ring, which reportedly is worth more than $10,000, according to Israeli reports. He told the Israeli media that he found the ring on the ground—the day it was lost in the haredi community of Geula in Jerusalem, when it was accidentally emptied into a home garbage receptacle and then into a municipal dumpster.
