Is it something more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack? Probably recovering two diamond rings hidden under tons of garbage. The feat was achieved by the garbage men and women of Long Island, New York. Those heroes put an end to the drama experienced by Colleen Dyckman. The woman had taken off her engagement ring and wedding ring to attend to household chores. Then the drama: inadvertently she dropped them into the trash bin. Not finding them anywhere, she assumed that the only place where they could be finished was garbage. But there was a problem: the bag had already been taken by the garbage truck. Colleen then chased the van, reaching the Babylon dump. Visibly upset about what had happened, while tears were pouring down, she began to rummage in a mountain of garbage.
Eight garbage men and women decided to assist her in the unlikely and smelly research. After four hours of unsuccessful attempts, the group was about to give up, when one of them, Kim Weathers, miraculously identified the two jewels. That put an end to the odyssey. Covered with garbage, organic and food waste, the intrepid explorers were exhausted and yet elated. They hugged each other in an embrace that sealed the extraordinary feat. The next day, after numerous showers, Colleen returned to the dump to reward her saviours with pizza and brownies.
