SEATTLE (AP) - A Washington family says sewage workers in Bothel found a diamond in the rough after their 4-year-old son flushed his mom’s wedding ring down the toilet.

The Seattle Times (https://bit.ly/1UUqGOp ) reports that Ryan and Anna Cornish reached out to Bothell city workers earlier this week asking for help to retrieve the ring.

Ted Stonebridge - the city’s water and sewer maintenance supervisor - says workers found the ring a day later after sifting through paper, rock and human waste.

Ryan Cornish says that he took the ring to be cleaned before sharing the good news with his wife. The parents say they had been planning to hand down the ring to their younger daughter.

Ryan and Anna added their son now knows what he did was a big no-no.
