Google Earth: Saroo Brierley - Homeward Bound

The amazing true story of Saroo Brierley will make you cry. He was lost at the age of 5 after falling asleep on a train waiting for his brother. He lost his Indian family then and he was adopted by an Australian family. He searched for 25 years for his family but since he had only visual memories of the place he grew up he was actually searching for a needle in a haystack.

Then he found Google Earth and started his search from the train station. He searched and searched through India using Google Earth and finally he found the town he grew up. He went there and he fould his home and his family.
