‘A Needle in a Haystack’: Vt. Farmer Finds Prosthetic Leg Lost by Skydiver

An unusual case of lost property in Vermont had a happy ending, thanks to social media and an eagle-eyed farmer.

“You’ve always got to keep an eye out,” said Joe Marszalkowski, who found a prosthetic leg Sunday in his soybean field. “It was literally a needle in a haystack as far as trying to find it.”

The field is in West Addison, not far from Vermont Skydiving Adventures, where thrill-seekers can get some really stunning views of the Champlain Valley.

Double amputee Chris Marckres went for a jump Saturday and said that after leaping from the plane, he lost one of his prosthetic legs.

“I think my adrenaline was so high and I was just so excited, I didn’t realize I had lost it,” Marckres told NECN and NBC10 Boston in a phone interview Monday.
