Couple's 25th wedding anniversary photos survive 15 months in sea, are returned by fisherman


Amid the flotsam of daily life -- money woes, laundry, screaming children -- it's hard to believe in miracles. But they do happen.

When he hauled his heavy nets out of the chilly gray Atlantic Ocean several weeks ago Spanish fisherman Benito Estevez spotted a corroded Nikon digital camera peeking out from among the cod and seaweed.

But inside the $300 camera -- which drifted underwater for 15 months at the whim of deep water currents, first in the Bay of Biscay north of Spain and then into the open ocean south of Ireland -- Estevez found a fully intact memory card with 175 pictures and 10 video clips.
