Japanese teen reunited with football lost in tsunami

GOOD news. Firstly, Japanese teenager Misaki Murakami has got his ball back. The football was swept out to sea on March 2011 when a tsunami hit the town of Rikuzen-takata. It’s turned up on Alaska’s Middleton Island, 70 miles from the US mainland. American David Baxter found it on the beach.

“I’m very grateful as I’ve so far found nothing that I’d owned.”

The Baxters also found a volleyball. The search is on for a Mr or Mrs “Mikasa“.

Menawhile, the football last seen being kicked by David Beckham, in the video is presumed lost in space…
