#GoodNews: Students in Canada Help Man Flee Ukraine Using Satellite Images

A group of students at a Canadian high school help a man flee Ukraine with the help of social media and satellite imagery.

Karen Robb, an educational assistant at Fort Richmond Collegiate school in Winnipeg, reconnected with her birth father two years ago after searching for him for decades. He was born in Canada, but has lived in Ukraine for many years. She asked a geography class to help him get out of the country. 

The teens used Google Maps, satellite images and social media to help Gary navigate his way through the war zone and get to the train station safely.
