An Emergency Facebook Post Saved These American Travelers’ Lives

Michael Lythcott and Stacey Eno were travel buddies who took a trip to Bali, Indonesia. They were only there for a mere seven hours before tragedy struck. Traveling back to their hotel in the wee hours of the morning, things would take a turn for the worst. If it weren’t for Facebook, they might not have lived to tell this tale.
