99% of the Internet is smut, angry YouTube comments, and photos of Justin Bieber with no shirt on. So whenever it's actually used for GOOD, we should celebrate that.
On Monday, a 59-year-old woman named May Goldberg wandered out of her apartment in New York. And she suffers from severe dementia, so obviously her family freaked out.
First they called the police, who said they'd keep an eye out. Then they started putting up fliers everywhere. But she still hadn't turned up by the next day.
Which is when her son had the idea to post something about it on the website Reddit, along with a photo of her. Then Reddit users started "upvoting" it, so it would get more exposure.
And within HOURS, a Reddit user spotted her walking through Midtown, and waited with her in a hotel lobby until police showed up.
Afterward, May's son posted a follow-up message to tell the entire Reddit community, quote, "You are AMAZING." (Reddit / Huffington Post / NY1.com)
