— A newlywed couple had a scare last weekend when one their wedding rings ended up at the bottom of Lake Gaston.

Karin and George Pasini, originally of Florida, are spending the month at their home on Lake Gaston. Last week during a family party, Karin Pasini was in the water floating on a boat cushion when she noticed the ring was gone.

When the couple purchased the rings less than a year ago, Karin Pasini said the jeweler told her the rings were one of a kind and made in Italy.

With the ring at the bottom of the lake, she thought there was no hope to get it back.

Family members kept swimming to the bottom to search for the ring, but no one could find it.

Then, relatives had the idea to go looking for scuba gear. A neighbor had just what they needed.

Within 10 minutes of putting on the gear, divers found the ring.

“I didn’t have to replace it for something else which I wasn’t married with,” Karin Pasini said. “So, this feels very, very special.”

The couple will celebrate their anniversary next month by taking a cruise in Florida.

    Would it be "newsworthy" if had gone down the toilet and a plumber retrieved it? What's the difference here?

    "i am confused...how/why is this newsworthy?"

    I think it is more newsworthy that the majority of the "news" we get, which is all negative, and mostly full of lies.

    This is a Human interest story with a good, positive ending.

    Wow-- why they even bother to look for the ring. Vacationing for a month at their home on Lake Gaston and then taking a boat cruise next month. Guess they must be collecting welfare cause they sure aint working.
