Google Rescues Canadian Child from Abuse

Google now got a new, even more astonishing story to add to its testimonial page. This time, Google helped rescue a child from an allegedly sexually abusive situation. According to BBC News, the child typed in 'kids helpline' (the official name of a children's organization in Canada) into Google Search and an anonymous e-mail plea for help was then sent to Australia and later forwarded to Canada. Canadian police tracked the location of the computer with its IP address and rescued the child. Google's search engine has been praised by many of its high relevance and this once again was proved by real life scenarios. If you also have a story about Google, you can submit it here.
