What a delightful story this is. You’d think it’s straight out of the movie script.
They called this New Zealand man the Lord of The Rings. Aleki Taumoepeau, an ecologist by profession, has been searching for the wedding ring he lost 16 months ago, working at the city’s harbor. He claimed that he saw something glowing at the sea floor one time and when he went to check it out, he discovered that it was the ring he lost. He had been married for only three months when he lost his ring.
“I couldn’t believe that I could see the ring so perfectly,” he says when news of this spread throughout the city. And those who’ve witnessed how he lost it and found it again, says it was similar to the Oscar winning movie, The Lord of The Rings, which incidentally was helmed by a New Zealand local, too (Peter Jackson).
