Van driver follows satnav up goat-track, gets stuck on mountain
HELLO! I'M HANGING OFF A HELICOPTER!
A Swiss van driver got stuck near the top a mountain after his satnav directed him onto a "glorified goat track".
A helicopter crew winched Robert Ziegler, 37, and his van to safety - check out the amazing photos of his rescue.
Ziegler told police he was lost but pressed on, hoping to find a way back to the main road. Rescue workers were remarkably charitable, considering that Ziegler had driven up a marked footpath.
"He must have been a pretty fair driver to get that far up a glorified goat track," a fire brigade rep said.
If Ziegler had been really good, he could have driven down the way he came - backwards. But on reflection, it was probably for the best that he phoned for help: hilarious GPS navigation mishap is one thing, plunging to certain death another.
