Google Earth Finds Woman Stranded on an Island for 7 Years --- Hoax?

 
Google Earth Finds Woman Stranded on an Island for 7 Years --- Hoax?

News-Hound reported a few days ago that images captured by Google Earth's Satellite found Gemma Sheridan who was supposedly stranded on an island in the Pacific Ocean for 7 YEARS! 

The story sounds pretty epic. The picture (seen above) made the internet rounds throughout this week, but before you get too in to this story, you should know that it was a bunch of hooey.

The story took a lot of people for a ride - including me - but this story sounds too good to be true for a reason, coming straight out of Hollywood [Castaway anyone?]. 

Snopes had the full report here.

So, where did this image come from? The picture was taken from a story about the destruction in Kyrgyzstan way back in 2010. More on that here
