    Dedicated NYC Parks worker finds woman's wedding ring for her - in tons of garbage

    Heroic NYC Parks worker digs through tons of trash to reunite
    woman with her wedding ring after she accidentally threw it away
    (Daily Mail)
    When Danielle Carroll realised with horror that she'd accidentally thrown her wedding ring away she desperately reached out to a city Parks Department worker to help her find it.

    The chances of Gary Gaddist, who picks up trash in lower Manhattan five days a week, finding the diamond-encrusted sparkler were slim at best.

    But – moved by Carroll’s plea – Gaddist dismissed the low odds and began searching through tons of trash for the ring.
    Carroll started crying with joy when Gaddist called and told her she was getting her ring back.

    ‘This guy did something he didn’t have to do, and I find that amazing,' Carroll told the New York Daily News after being reunited with her ring.

    Heroic Gaddist revealed he helped out because he could tell Carroll and her husband were in love. ‘It was a love thing,’ he said.
