On Waterproof camera returns to owner after being lost at sea news story (65 comments in total)

In 1996 on the NYC subway heading down to China Town for a shoot I had a then VERY expensive Fuji 515 in a backpack along with a myriad of lenses. Subway being very crowded I had to take the backpack off and must have bumped a zipper. The camera must have came out on the floor while I was seated and getting off at my stop did not see it. I was grabbed by arm right before getting off by a young man to see if it was my camera. I could have been out $23K in 2014 inflated dollars if not for the young man stepping up. In Boston's Faneuil Hall years later while shooting with a Nikon 990 (then around a $1K) I let my young son take a picture, who when done put the camera on a bench he was sitting on. I realized minutes later he did not have the camera and it was not on the bench when we went to look for it and it was gone. My wife said to go see if anyone turned it in. Well I did and I someone did turn it in. Check your gear before getting up and most important for me, listen to your spouse.
