Homeless man called hero for returning rings

A Baldwin woman thought her wedding and engagement rings were lost forever when she dropped them at a train station, but a homeless man made sure she got her rings back.

Pamela Brown says she realized her rings were gone when she reached Manhattan Thursday. Brown called her husband, who raced down to the Baldwin train station and left his phone number with a newsstand owner, Sarie Bano.

The Browns weren't holding out much hope, but they got some very good news. Angelo Munoz, a 51-year-old homeless man, had found the rings in the parking lot.

The couple rushed to the station after getting a call from Bano and reclaimed the rings in exchange for a $100 reward.
