NEWNAN, Ga. (March 28, 2013)—Lindsay Scallan, a Georgia woman who lost her camera while scuba diving during a 2007 trip to Hawaii, will soon have the camera back.
It washed ashore in Taiwan.
Scallan says she was on a scuba diving trip when she lost her camera during a night dive.
Scallan told WGCL-TV she recently got a Facebook message from a high school friend saying his wife found an article on a Hawaiian television station's website about a lost camera.
Scallan said a China Airlines employee found the camera.
All of the images were still on the memory card.
The airline offered to pay for Scallan to travel to Taiwan to retrieve her camera and meet the man who found it.
Scallan calls the experience social media at its best.
