在翻遍10吨垃圾后终于找回了这一传家珍宝

  A Massachusetts woman who mistakenly threw away her diamond ring last week recovered the family heirloom after tracking down the garbage truck and searching through 10 tons of city trash bags.

  Joan Sawyer of Bedford says all her efforts paid off after realizing the horror of dropping her diamond ring into her single trash bag, that wound up among thousands of others.

  “I was in total panic,” Mrs Sawyer told WHDH-TV, saying she thought she'd never see the heirloom again.

  Her diamond ring dropped by accident in the trashcan and only realized after a dump truck had made a stop at their house.

  “I said, 'Oh my God, it's in the rubbish truck,' “Mrs Sawyer recalled before calling the Allied Waste Service.

  Allied Waste was able to find the truck number specifically that had come to their door and tell them where it was heading.

  Mrs Sawyer and her husband waited for three hours watching out for her 24-44 truck to arrive.

  But to their mixed relief, it arrived, emptying 10 tons of trash in a room.

  Lucky enough to have the voluntary aid of Covanta workers who helped the Sawyers pick through the mounds of black trash bags and other waste, as her husband Bill Sawyer described, the crew were relentless before there was a shimmer of light at the end of their tunnel.

  “I said, 'Oh my God, that's my bag, I recognize something in it,’ '' Mrs Sawyer recalled.

  Mr Sawyer began to tear the trash bag apart, and there, it appeared.

  “You could almost see the tears in her eyes; she was thrilled she found it,” Ken Nydam of Covanta told WHDH-TV.

  “And then everyone who helped out, they were just happy they got to see how happy she was and we were happy we could help them out,” he added.

  据英国《每日邮报》11月17日报道,美国马萨诸州的一名女性上周误将自己的一枚钻石戒指丢掉,在追着垃圾车翻遍10吨的城市垃圾后终于找回了她的这一传家珍宝。

  贝德福德市的琼-索耶称说,在上千个垃圾袋中找回自己曾误丢戒指的那一袋,她所有的努力都值得了。

  索耶女士告诉WHDH-TV的记者说:“我害怕极了。”她以为自己再也见不到这枚传家钻戒了。

  她的钻石戒指不小心掉在了垃圾桶里,直到自卸汽车停在他们家门口时她才意识到戒指丢了。

  索耶夫人回忆道:“我说,‘天哪,戒指在垃圾桶里。’”随后我就给废品服务公司打了电话。

  废品公司能查到来他们家收垃圾的垃圾车的具体车牌号,并告知他们该车开向了哪里。

  索耶夫人和她的先生等待了三个小时,注意寻找车号为24-44的卡车到达废品站。

  但是该车回来时带回了10吨的垃圾,全部倾倒在一个房间里。这令他们既安心又为难。

  足够幸运地是卡万塔公司的员工自愿帮助索耶夫妇搜寻垃圾。索耶夫人的丈夫——比尔-索耶形容道,工人们都坚持不懈即使还有一丝希望之光。

  索耶夫人回忆道:“我说‘天哪,那是我的垃圾袋,我认得它里面的东西。’”

  索耶先生扯开袋子,戒指就出现了。

  卡万塔公司的肯-尼达姆告诉WHDH-TV说:“你几乎能看见她热泪盈眶,找到戒指时她激动极了。”

  他补充道:“所有帮忙出力的人都很开心见到她喜极而泣的样子。我们也很高兴能帮他们摆脱困境。”
