(Newser) – A camera lost in a shipwreck has been found nearly two years after the vessel sank to the bottom of the Pacific off the coast of Vancouver Island. And not only was the device returned to its rightful owner, but its memory card and all of the images on it were intact. Two university students retrieved the camera from the sea floor while on a research dive, and a local Coast Guard member recognized a person in one of the images as someone he rescued when the boat sank in 2012.
