Sonoma Sheriff’s said they got a strange call of a found prosthetic leg at a lumber yard in Cloverdale California. 

A deputy gathered the intact leg, checked the area and contacted a nearby airport.

Sonoma Sheriff’s said it turns out that an amputee went skydiving and his leg fell off in mid-flight from about 10,000 feet up. 

The leg’s owner said some friends looked around the area but couldn’t find it.

The leg’s owner said he lost his first leg in a freak skydiving accident two years ago but that hasn’t held him back.

He was thankful to get his $15k leg back and was even more thankful it didn’t land on anyone or break anything. He said he promises to make a tether and learn from this but fully plans to stick with his passion.
