The tale of a camera lost at sea.
The above Canon EOS 1000D was lost at the bottom of the ocean off the coast of British Columbia, Canada for over a year.
Turns out it was found by a diver named Markus Thompson, who brought it back to the top. He discovered the SD card still worked and he was able to view the photos.
What now? Well Markus took to Google+ and ended up finding the owner of the camera!
Thompson took to Google+, posting the story and a few identifying details he was able to dig up from the photos. Within a day, the hive mind was able to track down and contact the owner, a firefighter in British Columbia. We're not saying you should be thankful for Google+, but the actual people who use it sure seem like good folks.
