A Wisconsin woman was fishing in Minnesota during the July Fourth weekend when she reeled in somebody’s prosthetic leg.
Beth Krohn was at her vacation home on Lake Ida near Alexandria, Minnesota. She told KSAX-TV that she was on the lake for about an hour when she reeled in something large – and she knew it wasn’t a fish. Once she saw the prosthetic leg, Krohn said she gasped and hoped it was not a dead body. She later realized it was an artificial leg – so she called some specialists, and found that Pam Riley of Morris, Minnesota had owned it.
Riley also has a vacation home on Lake Ida – and it turned out that she lost the prosthetic leg three years ago while swimming. Riley never thought it would be recovered. But she met up with Krohn the day it happened, and they exchanged stories and body parts. The TV station did not say where Krohn lives in Wisconsin. Krohn said her catch is one for the ages. She said it’s like going deer hunting and getting the biggest buck of all.
