The 76-year-old woman who lost her ring while clapping for coronavirus heroes a few nights ago got it back — thanks to people who read the original story we posted, according to a family member.
Ellen, the woman’s daughter, just sent us an email about the discovery after telling us that several West Side Rag readers had been scouring West End Avenue for the lost ring. She wrote the note below:
“Two women who saw the story decided to walk and search. As they didn’t have the exact location they looked in places others hadn’t. They found the ring in the base of a tree (it seems as if someone probably found it earlier and placed it there as it was way around the corner and nowhere near where it possibly could have fallen). They brought the ring to the doorman who called my Mom.
So thank you!! And a very happy ending.”
