Man Finds Long-Lost Mother with Help of Google Earth
If you consider Google Earth to be a useful tool, then imagine how the man who found his long-lost mother via the service feels about it. Saroo Brierley, at age five, got separated from his brother when he fell asleep at a train station in India. After hopping on a train in hopes of finding him, he fell asleep only to wake up fourteen hours later in a shady part of some town. Being only five-years-old, he was effectively lost and didn't know where to go.

I'm more appalled that they couldn't eventually reunite the kid with his mother somehow... what a way to grow up.
