While rafting with friends down the Clackamas River in Oregon, Ariel Rigney lost her prosthetic leg. Several of her friends tried to dive down to find it after it went flying when they hit an extremely bumpy part of the river, but they had no luck.
Rigney turned to Facebook, writing a post about her missing leg, but she didn’t really expect anything to come of it. But the very next day, a man named Eric Ganter sent her a photo of her rescued leg. He’s an avid scuba diver and says he’s no stranger to finding things in the river, but admits he was a little surprised to find the leg, with Rigney’s shoe still attached.
Eric had seen several of his friends comment on a Facebook post, “Clackamas River lost leg” and as an avid diver decided to go search for it. Now Ariel has her leg back and she’s become fast friends with its finder.
