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

Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She says her line kept snagging on something, and that she hoped it wasn’t a dead body.

A KSAX-TV report says her catch turned out to be a prosthetic leg belonging to Pam Riley of Morris.

Krohn returned the leg to Riley after tracking her down through a prosthetic limb manufacturer in Alexandria.

Krohn says she’s proud of the catch, comparing it to going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck.
