Engagement ring lost on subway returned to owner
NEW YORK -- A teaching assistant in New York City is grateful to a mystery woman who turned in her 3-carat diamond ring to the subway's lost and found.
Hager Elsayed discovered her ring was gone while riding the N train. She tore her home apart, but determined it wasn't there.
She felt terrible. Her fiance, Juan Rivera, lamented that he was still paying for the ring.
About two months later, something clicked when Elsayed saw the station agent in Brooklyn. She realized he'd been working there the day her ring went missing.
Anthony Tiralosi told her an elderly woman, who spoke no English, had turned it in.
Tiralosi told his kids about the ring. He wanted them to know the importance of returning something that doesn't belong to them.
