Industrious Calif. Lawyer Tracks Down Canadian Owner of Lost Camera
A Canadian woman now has a higher regard for mankind, thanks to an industrious California lawyer.
Karen Kimpton, a Canadian nurse educator, lost her digital camera Jan. 3 when she was kayaking with family members near a resort hotel about an hour south of Cancun, according to the Regina Leader-Post. She realized she lost the camera after getting to shore, but figured she would never find it.
Redding, Calif., worker’s compensation lawyer David Huscher was snorkeling with his sons in the same area earlier this month when his 17-year-old son found the camera, the story says. Huscher checked out the pictures and noticed one photo of a woman in running attire at a marathon held in Regina.
He contacted the Regina Leader-Post for help identifying the woman, according to an earlier story by newspaper. “I’ve been an amateur photographer for years, so I thought if I get the camera back to someone who has important memories on it, it’d be cool,” he explained to the newspaper.
Kimpton says some of the photos on the camera meant a lot to her. “It really restores your faith in man,” Kimpton told the Leader-Post. “He went to a lot of effort—that was so kind!”
