Prosthetic Leg Falls From Sky, Returned to Owner 04-23-19 17:40 DC

Sonoma County deputies received an odd call this week, reporting a prosthetic leg that was found at a Cloverdale lumber yard. The deputy gathered the leg and called people at a nearby airport.

Here’[s what happened: An amputee went skydiving and his leg fell off in mid-flight from about 10,000 feet up. Deputies found the skydiver and returned the leg.

But there is more to the story. A post made by the Department says, "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. He jokingly quipped that this was his second leg lost while skydiving. He was thankful to get his $15k leg back and was even more thankful it didn’t land on anyone or break anything. He promises to make a tether and learn from this but fully plans to stick with his passion. Deputies wished the man good luck and congratulated him on his great spirit.
