A Minnesota mom took her kids to a corn maze for some autumn fun, but she ended up with a challenge harder than finding a needle in a haystack: She had to look for a diamond in a pit of kernels.

Karilyn Miller dipped her hand into a pit of corn kernels as her children were playing. Her wedding ring slipped off.

There are signs around the farm warning visitors to remove jewelry.

Many strangers helped look through seven truck loads full of corn three-feet deep.

Finally, a metal detector finally started buzzing, and the diamond was found.
