INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis woman is able to walk again after divers recovered her prosthetic leg from a reservoir.
Amy Gillum said it went overboard when she was boating over the weekend.
A fire department tactical team happened to be doing underwater exercises in the area and offered to help find it.
After almost an hour of searching, a diver was doing a final pass when he found the prosthetic leg 20 feet down and 100 yards from shore.
The leg is made of titanium and carbon fiber and is worth about $20,000.
Gillum says she’s very grateful the divers came to her rescue.
