Where Did The Diamond Go?
It was a charity event and the concept was pretty simple. The Tampa, Fla. Women's Club offered a chance to win a one-carat $5000 diamond for just a $20 donation. The real diamond was placed at the bottom of one of 400 champagne flutes. The other glasses were filled with cubic zirconia stones valued at $10.
80-year-old Miriam Tucker decided she didn't want to put her fingers in the glass so she took a few sips and while laughing with the other women at the table she realized she swallowed what turned out to be the real diamond.
Oddly she was already scheduled for a colonoscopy, and the doctor was able to find it. Probably a lot easier than digging through the toilet.
