The amazing journey of a drowned camera

The end of a story is often the beginning of a new one. Such was the case with a certain camera. Lost by its owner while diving, the camera travelled over 250 km in 2.5 years. Found and still working, it became the reason for an international search and a great adventure for its young finders.

A dive like many, however, ends unhappily. A Japanese student loses her camera in an underwater housing. And here, in principle, similar stories, regardless of whether it is a camera, a torch or anything else, have their sad ending. However, this time fate has prepared something special…

In Taiwan, small pupils from a local school clean the beach under the watchful eye of a teacher. The problem of rubbish polluting coastal waters plagues the whole planet, so it is no wonder that appropriate attitudes are inculcated from an early age. This time, however, among the heaps of rubbish polluting the beach, there is something unusual – a camera covered with mussels and sea sediments.

To everyone’s surprise, after removing the device from its casing and recharging the battery, it works. The young students, persuaded by their teacher, decide to find the owner of the camera and return it to him. After looking through the contents of the camera, they start searching on the Internet. A post with a photo of the camera goes viral on Facebook and within 12 hours it reaches its owner!

Japanese woman – Serina Tsubakhara, wrote that she lost her camera while diving off the coast of Ishigaki, on 25 September 2015. During the dive she rushed to help a colleague who was having problems and that’s when she lost her camera. For such a long time Serina has already come to terms with the loss, and now, she says, in addition to the loss she will also gain the opportunity to meet wonderful and kind people who have decided to return her camera.

So here we have the amazing story of the camera, the great adventure of the young finders, the souvenir photos recovered, and a contribution to another journey and new friendships. Serina has already planned to visit Taiwan in June and meet the boys who returned her device.
