Two friends who wanted to help a motorist stranded near a forest were in turn trapped at nightfall. “Their vehicle got stuck in the snow and they had no telephone service to call for help” in this isolated region, explained on Facebook the sheriff of Lane County. Stuck in the cold, they hesitate to walk in the snow. Finally, one of them remembers that he has a drone with him. These amateur MacGyver will then tinker with an unexpected solution.
“I had seen a film recently about people being stuck and my friend had seen on the TV news that people were throwing mobile phones by drone at inmates in prison. We then said to ourselves that we had to go further high as the mountain to be able to capture, and we used a cord, a little tape and paper towel”testifies Ryan Casey, one of the survivors, in the video of TF1.
