Veteran reunited with lost prosthetic leg

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A man who lost his prosthetic leg while surfing in Florida has got it back after a boy found it during a treasure hunt.

Army veteran Carter Hess had been surfing at St Andrews Bay on Panama City Beach on 11 April when a wave knocked off his $3,000 (£2,457) titanium prosthetic limb, which was custom-made for surfing.

"I knew immediately it was off of me," Mr Hess told The Panama City News Herald. "I've surfed in much bigger waves and it never came off like that."

Mr Hess tried searching for two days but was unsuccessful, and weeks went by without any sightings of the leg.
