A sheriff's deputy investigated the Sonoma County incident, and discovered there was a guy who had been skydiving and his leg fell off at about 10,000 feet. The two have been reunited.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. The sheriff in Sonoma County, Calif., got a call yesterday. A prosthetic leg was found in a lumber yard. A deputy investigated and discovered there was a guy, Dion, skydiving this week. His leg fell off at about 10,000 feet. Dion and his leg were reunited. He had lost his original leg a couple years ago in a skydiving accident. Dion told the sheriff he'll keep doing what he loves. He did promise to make a tether for his leg.
