Matt Walker is one dedicated husband. When he lost his wedding ring, he was devastated, but instead of buying another one or simply leaving it, he did the unthinkable.
Matt was determined to retrieve the lost ring, after all, it was a symbol of love and commitment to his wife, there was no way he was going to let this ring stay lost.
It all happened when Matt Walker, 47, was swimming in Clevedon Marine lake with his kids when his white gold wedding band slipped off his finger.
He panicked as he realised the ring was no longer on his finger and immediately began splashing around.
He quickly tried to search for it, as he dived under the water but unfortunately he didn’t find it. The lake is 250m long, 100m wide, and a metre deep so it’s no surprise he couldn’t find the ring.
‘I was genuinely gutted,’ he said. ‘It is just a ring at the end of the day, but it was just a few days before our anniversary on August 16.’
Matt stayed true to his word and contacted the committee that maintains the lake. That’s when he had some amazing, almost unbelievable news.
Matt found out that the lake was set to be drained in two months time.
They said yes, and last week, Matt and five seekers drained lake’s thick, wet, mud in search of the ring.
‘It was buried a foot deep in really deep, clay-like mud,’ said Matt. ‘It’s amazing that they found it as it’s such an enormous area to search.
‘I was pretty surprised to be honest – I had started to give up hope.
‘I’m delighted to have it back.’
This story is a complete miracle however we think Matt might need to get that ring tightened, don’t you?
