Liam Carr, 25, became an elderly widow’s hero this week when he rescued her wedding ring that had fallen off her finger and into a sink drain. The 97-year-old grandmother of six was washing her hands when the ring slipped off.

Carr, a five-year employee of Eco-Aqua Services, removed the U-bend from beneath the sink but could not find the ring. Cleaning debris from the trap, he found the heirloom, which had been given to the widow by her late husband, who passed away 10 years ago.

The widow called Carr a hero for finding the ring that had been in her possession since she was 20.

“I was determined not to leave the house without ensuring the ring was back on her finger,” Carr says.
