http://www.theblaze.com/stories/lost-child-reunited-with-fami... It sounds like the storyline from a movie. A five-year-old boy gets separated from his brother at a train station in India. He boards the wrong train by himself and falls asleep. He awakens on the east side of India. The events that follow include him trying to scrounge his way back home, nearly drowning and almost being sold into slavery.

What would happen next in this movie? You’ve probably seen enough plot lines to guess. He didn’t make it home at this time, but he does go on to become a successful businessman and, of course, found his family in the end.

While this may sound like a Hollywood or Bollywood-directed event, the story covered by Tasmania‘s The Mercury is Saroo Brierley’s reality.

    Amazing story but why was the older brother found dead on the tracks? Was it at that time, or later in years? It was not clear to me when I read that. They didn't go into more details about that.

    Having seen documentaries on TV about the Indian railways it`s very easy to see how something like this could happen, those trains are Chaotic + many people die everyday on the tracks !!. A sad story with a happy ending for the boy + his family.
