Couple reunited with engagement ring dropped in sewer

NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York City said they helped a couple ring in the New Year by reuniting them with their missing engagement ring.

NBC New York reported the diamond ring was dropped down a sewer grate last Thursday near Times Square.

Officers noticed the ring in a grate on Eighth Avenue and 48th Street and recovered it with the help of the New York Fire Department and a police emergency services unit.

The NYPD said in a tweet the couple was reunited with their ring last Friday.

While it was the first engagement ring recovered in 2019, the NYPD found another engagement ring last month that was given back to the couple on The Ellen Show.
