An American amputee who lost his prosthetic leg while skydiving was reunited with his limb, thanks to a kind farmer who found it intact among his crops.
Chris Marckres said he went for a tandem jump on Saturday at Vermont Skydiving Adventures in Addison and didn’t realise until he was back on the ground that his leg was missing.
“I think my adrenaline was so high and I was just so excited, I didn’t realise I had lost it,” Marckres told NECN/WYCN.
He posted a plea on Facebook for local residents to keep an eye out for the missing limb as replacing it would be expensive.
The post caught the attention of farmer Joe Marszalkowski, who searched his property on Sunday and found the leg amongst his crops.
