Girl digs up diamond

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Darton College baseball team held a Diamond Dig promotion Tuesday night. After the game with Andrew College, women who bought a ticket got a spoon and went on the infield in search of a half carat diamond ring buried in a box.

Eighth grader Perri Rabbitt found it. She said, "My mom was digging like right here or something, and I was like wait, this is really squishy, so I just kept going. And I felt something hard, and I was like there's no way. There's gotta be a sprinkler or something metal. That is not it. That can't be it. And then we kept going, and it was it."

Perri says you never know when it's going to be your lucky day.
