A woman in Boise, Idaho says she now believes in miracles. Sewer workers found her $6,000 diamond ring she accidentally flushed down a toilet 18-months ago. Mechelle Rieger claimed the seven-carat diamond ring on Thursday after she brought a photo and the appraisal from the jeweler that made it. She thanked two city workers who found it. They were checking a filtration basket last week at a sewer plant and discovered the ring along with some coins. Rieger says she freaked out and "just started screaming" when the ring fell into the toilet.
