WEST ADDISON, Vt. (WCAX) - A new friendship has formed after a man found a skydiver’s prosthetic leg.

On Saturday, Chris Marckres went skydiving in Vermont for the first time.

His right prosthetic slipped off during the 10,000-foot drop and he posted on social media asking people to look out for it.

Unbeknownst to him, about 100 people went out to search for his prosthetic after his post.

On Sunday, a farmer found it in a 110-acre soybean field in West Addison.

Instead of a monetary reward, they’ve decided to skydive together sometime this fall.
