MONTCLAIR, Calif. - A homeowner digging for gold in his front yard said he got "carried away" and ended up with a 60-foot-deep hole, authorities said.

Norm Enrique, 63, began digging 10 days ago after his gold detector reported a positive hit near his front patio. He told authorities he only intended to go down three or four feet.

Fire officials called to the scene Tuesday found two men that Enrique hired were inside the un-reinforced hole, using a bucket and rope to remove dirt.
This guy's awesome!

what an idiot!

Hopefully he found that $100. engagement ring, so he can use it to help pay for fixing his little hole.

Did he really think no one would notice? What a doofus!!!

OK, I take that back. He's not an idiot, but he did a very idiotic thing.
Oh my gosh, that is so awesome and stupid all at once.
