Farmer returns prosthetic leg that skydiver lost during jump

WEST ADDISON, VT (AP) – A Vermont skydiver who lost his prosthetic leg during a jump has it back, thanks to a farmer who kept an eye out for it and spotted it in a soybean field.

Double amputee Chris Marckres, of Hyde Park, went for a jump last Saturday at Vermont Skydiving Adventures in West Addison and lost one of his prosthetic legs after leaping from the plane.

“I think my adrenaline was so high and I was just so excited, I didn’t realise I had lost it,” Marckres told NECN and NBC10 Boston.
