An Indian Man who was seperated from his family when he was five years old, 25 years ago, has found them using Google Earth. Saroo Brierley was begging at a station in Khandwa when he inadvertently boarded a train bound for Calcutta, 900 miles away. He spent weeks trying to get home before being taken in by an orphanage. Though later adopted by an Australian family, he never forgot the slum neighboroughood where he grew up, and spent hours searching for it online. Finally he identifid some key landmarks on Google Earth, and last month he flew out to be reunited with his family.
