ALEXANDRIA  (AP) – A Minnesota woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a lake three years ago has been reunited with the lost limb thanks to a Wisconsin angler.

Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She says her line kept snagging on something, and she thought, “I hope it’s not a dead body.”

Her catch turned out to be the prosthetic leg that Pam Riley of Morris lost three years ago.

Krohn eventually tracked Riley down and returned the lost limb.

Krohn says she’s proud of the catch. She says it’s like going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck of all.

Riley says she always wondered what someone would think if they saw a leg surfacing in a lake.
