Lindsay Scallan thought her new Canon PowerShot digital camera (in a waterproof case) was gone for ever, along with her vacation pictures, when she lost it in a night dive off the coast of Maui, Hawaii in 2007.
Six years later, the camera was found thousands of miles away in Taiwan by a China Airlines employee. He was able to recover the pictures from the memory card and post them on Hawaii News Now Facebook page. Lindsay’s friend recognized her from the pictures that were posted on the Facebook Page.
The China Airlines has offered a free round-trip ticket to Taiwan to be reunited with her camera, but she isn’t sure if she can take time off from work since she just started a new job a week ago.
