Help, I’m stuck up a Spanish mountain

Warms the cockles of your heart. Yes. A 62 year old chap was recently caught-up-a-freezing mountain with only his handset and a mobile signal to help.

Cue the London Telegraph:

Martin Stone, 62, got lost after climbing a 3,615 ft peak alone during a holiday on the island of Majorca.

He sent an SOS text message to his wife back home in the Midlands, who called British emergency services.

Spanish rescue workers launched a massive search operation but Mr Stone was spotted the following morning only thanks to his bright red scarf.

I bet that 50p international text was worth it.
