California Deputies Reunite Man With Prosthetic Leg He Lost While Skydiving
"He promises to make a tether and learn from this but fully plans to stick with his passion," the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office said.
"We got a strange call of a found prosthetic leg at a Cloverdale lumber yard," the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook. "... Turns out that an amputee went skydiving yesterday and his leg fell off in mid-flight from about 10,000 feet up."
The man, identified by the sheriff's office as Dion, searched the area after he landed but couldn't find the expensive prosthesis.
Fortunately, Sonoma deputies were able to track him down.
"Great guy, full of humor who said he lost his first leg in a freak skydiving accident two years ago but that hasn’t held him back," the sheriff's office added. "He jokingly quipped that this was his second leg lost while skydiving."
What Dion was most thankful for, however, was that the prosthesis didn't land on anyone.
"He promises to make a tether and learn from this but fully plans to stick with his passion," the sheriff's office added. "Good luck Dion!! Great spirit!!!"
