Throngs turn out to seek a ring – and $1,000 reward

Dozens of Jerusalemites answered the requests of a woman who lost her engagement ring to help her search through a vast pile of garbage on Thursday in which she had accidentally lost the valuable piece of jewelry.
A young woman in Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox Geula neighborhood who is set to get married in a months time was emptying her trash into a receptacle on the street and placed her diamond engagement ring in her pocket for safekeeping while doing the errand.
There was however a small, empty food bag in her pocket which she also discarded, and the ring seemingly fell into the bag before she threw it into the dumpster.
Having completed the task, she searched for the ring in her pocket and failed to find it. Just moments after she had disposed of her garbage however, a garbage truck approached the dumpster and emptied it into the truck seemingly with the ring inside.
The woman realized what had happened several moments later and immediately alerted the driver to the problem.
