Cameras Help Rescue Man Lost On North Sea
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. Im Renee Montagne.
A man lost on the ice of Germany's North Sea was saved by two cameras and a keen-eyed woman hundreds of miles away. The man had trekked onto pack ice to take photos of that sunset. He became disoriented and couldn't find the shore, so he signaled for help by flashing his camera. The woman who spotted him was taking in that same sunset on a webcam from the comfort of her home. She alerted police near where he was and they guided him to safety.
