Man Found Lost Camera At The Bottom Of River, The Photos Moved Him Deeply.

Maybe you're the kind of person who believes in fate, the serendipitous aligning of the stars that brings people together in the most unexpected ways. Maybe you're more of a cynic that believes things happen more at random, unrelated to the universe and its plans for us. Whatever kind of personality and perspective you've got, you'll be hard-pressed NOT to find just a little bit of magic in the following story.

After one vacation, a dad accidentally dropped his camera into a river. Of course, he never thought he'd see it again -- he'd lost it while jumping off of a cliff, and the camera presumably sank to the bottom. With it, he lost lots of photographs from the vacation, precious family memories that were just, well, gone.

That is, until a year later, when something magical happened. Read more about this amazing twist of fate and how one man's act of kindness preserved important family memories -- and made some new memories in the process.

He swam around for half an hour trying to find it.

Finally, he gave up, and figured he'd just never see the camera (or the pictures) ever again.
