FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (KGO) --A Kentucky girl went to extraordinary lengths to return lost property to its owner.
Nathan Palmer spent his Fourth of July weekend at the Georgia River when his video camera fell out of his hand and slid down the stream.
A week later, 12-year-old Emily Root discovered it beneath a rock. She took the camera home, charged it, and found videos of Palmer with his family.
Root posted some of the videos to try to track Palmer down and also contacted a local news station.
"She could have made a bad choice and no one would have ever known," Palmer said. "No sane person would believe that their camera would be returned to them three weeks later because of the greatness of a 12-year-old girl."
Shortly after, Palmer's colleagues reached out to him and told him about the stories all over the Internet.
Root said that despite the camera's $400 value, she never considered keeping it.
