MP3 Player saves Lost Tourists in the Swiss Alps

Has a Gadget Ever Saved You?

Phew, a happy ending to a tourists-getting-lost story! A couple of tourists who got lost in the cold, snowy Swiss mountains were saved by the light of their MP3 player, whose faint light was seen by the rescuers on the lookout for them.

I count myself lucky that I've never been in a scary situation I've needed to be rescued from, but I often consider what would help me in an emergency like that — the GPS on my phone is not only good for trying to find a restaurant I've never been to.

But I want to know — have you ever been saved by a gadget of yours in an emergency situation?
