A man lost on the ice of Germany's North Sea was saved by two cameras and a keen-eyed woman watching a sunset hundreds of miles away. The man had trekked onto pack ice to take photos of that sunset but became disoriented and couldn't find the shore. He signaled for help by flashing his camera. The woman who spotted him was taking in the view on a webcam from the comfort of her home. She alerted police, who guided him to safety.

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.
