Woman Loses Her Engagement Ring Down Sidewalk Grate And Comes Up With An Ingenious Plan To Get It Out

Trending

Kate Ray, a New Yorker who works for the American Civil Liberties Union—fight the good fight, Kate!—thankfully didn't fall down a sidewalk grate (yes, that's something that occasionally happens to people).

But she did lose her engagement ring.


But Kate wasn't ready to bid that ring of hers farewell. She says she lost it after she went to grab a cup of coffee with one of her colleagues.

She could see it at the bottom, though, so that's something.

But simply getting that ring out of the grate would be more complicated than Kate thought.

Thankfully, the MTA was on hand to lend their support...


...but they couldn't help her.

Con Ed customer service is pretty evil, so we understand Kate's frustration here.

But then Kate had an idea: A rather ingenious idea.


Kate was a woman on a mission.



Oh, did we mention Kate attracted a group of supporters?

And then...

It happened.

SHE DID IT!

You've gotta love NYC.


Kate's story of determination and perseverance attracted quite a few fans on social media.






Well done, Kate.

We knew you could do it!
