After reading this story from Google Earth today, I found myself thinking, this is unbelievable. It’s too good to be true, but as luck would have it, it is a true story, and it’s a wonderful one at that. The story is about a young five-year old boy who accidentally fell asleep on a stationary train in India, in 1986. He later awoke to find himself alone and in an unfamiliar place.
For years he searched for his family, but with no results. Then the proverbial light-bulb went off in his head one day. And using Google Earth, 26 years later, he was able to reunite himself with his family, who he lost touch with all those many years ago. It’s a touching story.
