Angelo Pericolo of New Jersey threw away what he thought was merely an empty disposable cup before his wife informed him the cup was holding her wedding ring. Unfortunately, the trash truck had already come and gone by this point, leaving the ring in a pile of almost 10 tons of garbage.

Amazingly, the sanitation workers helped Pericolo search through the piles of trash to find his wife's ring. After about 45 minutes of digging through knee-deep trash, one of the workers discovered the ring. Apparently, it helped that the couple had tied their bags shut, because it slimmed down the number of possible bags to search through.

"I think it was a miracle," said Bridget Pericolo.
