Man lost on the frozen North Sea rescued after woman spots him on her webcam

Man lost on the frozen North Sea rescued after woman spots him on her webcam

A woman watching the sunset on a webcam who spotted a German man lost on the frozen North Sea probably saved his life by alerting authorities, police have said.

The man was walking on the ice near St Peter-Ording in northern Germany when he became disoriented.

He used a camera to flash for help, gaining the attention of the woman on her computer, hundreds of miles away in southern Germany.

Man stranded on icy sea saved by alert webcam viewer


A man stranded on the frozen North Sea was rescued after police were notified by a woman in southern Germany who spotted his frantic camera flashes while she was admiring the sunset by computer on a beach webcam.

She alerted police who say the assistance probably saved the man's s life, the Associated Press reports.

The man, identified only as a tourist in his 40s,  had been taking pictures on the ice pack off the German coast near St Peter-Ording, but got disoriented, according to a police spokeswoman in Husum.

His repeated flashes for help were noticed by the woman at a computer hundreds of miles away who suspected he was in trouble and alerted police. They, in turn, guided him in using their car lights.
