A woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a western Minnesota lake three years ago has been reunited with the limb thanks to an angler.

Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She said her line kept snagging on something and that she hoped it wasn't a dead body.

A KSAX-TV report said her catch turned out to be a prosthetic leg belonging to Pam Riley of Morris.

Ms Krohn returned the leg to Ms Riley after tracking her down through a prosthetic limb manufacturer in Alexandria.

Ms Krohn said she was proud of the catch and compared it to going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck.

Ms Riley said she always wondered what someone would think if they saw a leg surfacing in a lake.
