A Beverly man who lost his wedding ring in the giant fish tank at the New England Aquarium dived down today to the spot where the ring was found.
Bob Pirrman, 36, held the ring that he had lost in July up for the cameras, while Michael Whyte, 54, who had found the ring Sunday, looked on.
Pirrman, who works at an ad agency that works for the aquarium, was on a guest dive in the tank, petting a 560-pound sea turtle, when his ring fell off.
Whyte was vacuuming the four-story tank when he saw the glittering object, which was resting, ironically enough, on a piece of finger coral, the Globe reports today.
