Man Finds Florida Family That Lost Camera on D.C. Metro



    (Published Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014)

    The search for a family that lost a camera on the Washington, D.C. metro went viral before the owners were found.

    Brian Pandya found a Nikon digital camera on the Orange Line as he headed to Arlington from his Washington Office, reported the Washington Post, but instead of sending the camera to the lost and found, he turned to social media.

    According to the Post, Pandya asked his friend Chris Gaskill, a social media fan, to spread the word.

    Gaskill sent the tweet below, with a picture of the family, and it's been retweeted almost 600 times.

    Pandya tweeted that he thinks the family is from Weston, Fla. after finding photos of Park Avenue Gym on the camera.

    When he called the gym, the gym contacted the family and the camera will be returned.

    "I cannot believe how, just how generous and nice that was becuase you don't see that very much anymore," said Sunny Riling, whose family lost the camera. "Most people don't take the time of day to do very much for anybody else, especially a stranger."

    Sunny and her family are preparing a thank you gift for Pandya. However, she said nothing can ever repay him for saving her family's most precious memories.
