Thrift store camcorder in Tarpon Springs holds another family's history

Thrift store camera holds family history

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. - Jon Worthington's son had no idea that something priceless was inside a camera bag that he brought home from the Shepard Center in Tarpon Springs.

The 15-year-old rescued an old video camera from the thrift store's trash bin.  Jon found several 8-millimeter cassettes inside, some of them containing shots of a family enjoying time together.

Jon put the video on YouTube, hoping the former owner might see it and ask to get the tapes back.
