Speechless in the Surf

I was on a beach in Southern England detecting when a man came up to me and asked how good was my machine. I replied it’s the best (E-TRAC), he then told me he had lost his wedding ring after falling off a jet ski he was in about 6ft of water and unable to swim and in the panic it had slipped off his finger he then said he was only married two months ago he took me to the area he thought he had lost and the tide was slowly going out I followed the tide out and after about an hours detecting I got a really good signal and dug down into the soft sand and found the ring the look on his face was worth the effort he was unable to speak and was very emotional and it’s a great feeling when you can return lost items, thanks Minelab for a fantastic detector!
