TRUTH !!
In 1871, journalist Henry M. Stanley met missionary David Livingstone. Though many think that Livingstone was lost - he was actually just sick. Stanley became famous for his "rescue" of the Scottish missionary and explorer when actually Stanley brought much-needed food and medicine, and Livingstone soon recovered. Livingstone remained in Africa for quite some time after Stanley returned to civilization.
