A distressed hiker was able to send a rescue note from a nearby camper’s drone.

Thanks to a drone and some quick-thinking campers, a 70-year-old hiker in distress is in distress no more after a rescue north of Jordan Valley, Oregon.

“He went down to the water and he only had enough battery to do one trip and he attached a piece of paper and a pen to his drone and walked over to the reservoir and landed it, and the guy over there wrote a note and sent it back. It said, ‘I’m 70 years old, I’ve been here for days help.”

Because there is no cell service in that area, Wolfe says hikers that plan to be there for several days should bring a satellite phone. They are expensive to buy but much cheaper to rent. The hiker is doing fine, and is undoubtedly a fan of drones after this experience.
