Wichita boy’s garage-sale buy holds a treasure for his family!

He probably would have been riding the bike.
Instead, Addison, who likes garage sales, was driving around to some of them with his grandmother, Lois Logan, in west Wichita. After three stops, he finally found something he wanted to buy. It was an old Polaroid camera at a house about a mile away from his grandmother’s house. He thought the camera was “pretty cool,” he said. He bought it for $1.
Back at his grandmother’s house, Addison got on the Internet to find out how to take a picture with it. When he removed the cartridge and opened it, he found an old photograph inside. He took the photo to his grandmother.
Lois Logan said she looked at the photo and saw her son, Scott, who died in an auto accident 23 years ago.
The photo showed Scott sitting on a sofa with a high school girlfriend, Susan. Lois guessed it was taken in 1978 or 1979, about 10 years before his death. She didn’t remember the photo, but thought it must be one of her old ones.
When Addison told her he found it inside the camera he’d just bought at the garage sale, she thought he was kidding.
“It was really weird,” she said.
Nobody else in the family could believe it, either

That's kinda freaky. What are the odds? I wonder if they ever went back to the house they bought the camera from to ask questions.
