A 6-year-old South Carolina boy who was “magnet fishing” in a lake caught a locked safe that was stolen from a nearby resident eight years ago.
Knox Brewer reeled in his surprise catch at Whitney Lake with the help of a bystander, his family members told WCIV-TV this week.
The waterlogged safe contained some jewelry, credit cards and a checkbook, according to a video of the discovery.
“I knew the right thing to do was go ahead and call the local authorities, get them involved and try to solve this mystery,” the child’s father, Jonathan Brewer, told the outlet.
Investigators later determined the lockbox was stolen eight years from a woman who lived across from the lake, the report said.The family returned the property to its owner.
“The first thing that she did was just kneel down, hug Knox and thanked him and thanked him for bringing that closure to her,” Jonathan Brewer said.
Most of the valuables were taken from the safe before it was tossed into the lake, but the woman was reunited with charms from an old bracelet.
