Diver found camera and returned card to owner after 10 years

In the waters of the Hiwassee River in the US state of Tennessee, a 27-year-old diver from Cleveland found an old and sediment-laden camera. Even at first glance, it was clear that the device had spent a long time underwater.

On closer inspection, the camera was obviously throwable, but the memory card was still usable and contained some photos. Tripp Hartson, who found the device, decided to reach out to the owner and return his property to him.

Owners pick up lost camera divers24.co.uk It turned out that the Kodak camera had spent over 10 years underwater and its owner had long since come to terms with the loss, let alone thought she would ever see the lost photos again.

As usual in such cases, the power of the internet and the help of people who saw Hartson’s post on Facebook proved reliable. The diver himself was completely surprised that just 24 hours after the photos were published, he was able to locate the owners.

This is all incredibly exciting! It’s a great feeling because there are old photos with our children on the card, so it’s very nice to be able to see them again after more than 10 years,” said Tisa Treece, owner of the camera

As a token of his gratitude for such a pleasant surprise, the diver received a gift card from the lucky owners to a popular equipment shop for a range of outdoor activities, so that he could stock up on what he needs for his next treasure hunt.
