Facebook has always been a great tool for heart-warming reunions. We've seen it find long-lost relatives, save one girl's eyesight, bust dumb criminals, even save a kidnapped boy. This amazing rescue story is no different.
Normally, when you call in to 911 on a cellphone, the dispatcher can track your GPS location. It can help the rescuers find you as quickly as possible. But when the GPS doesn't work just right, you could be out of luck, especially in remote areas.
A dad and his 11-year-old son were grateful for a quick-thinking dispatcher who found them using Facebook after their GPS sent rescuers the wrong location.
