iPod saves mans life

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - An iPod glowing in the middle of the night from thick underbrush led rescuers to a mushroom picker lost in the woods.

The search leader said Pini Nou, 25, was on his first outing and got separated from his mother, an experienced mushroom hunter.

At nightfall, she called Benton County authorities for help.

Peggy Peirson, acting county emergency management coordinator, said Nou used his cell phone to describe the landscape to rescuers as best he could in the darkness.

They finally located the Vancouver, Wash., man after 1 a.m. Friday when a member of a search and rescue team saw the light from the iPod, she said.

Nou, lacking a flashlight, had been using the music device for light, Peirson said.

She said the underbrush was so thick it took rescuers more than 20 minutes to reach Nou once they saw the glow.

Pierson said he was lightly dressed, and Nou said he was cold and tired and had aching feet. (Copyright 2006 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

That happened recently near here in the Angeles National Forest - but with a cell phone.

The rescuers in the helicopter had night vision goggles and they said after they rescued the guy that a light, even as small as a cell phone (or iPod, I'm guessing) lights up like a firework.

Very easy to see with the right equipment.

ha maybe Apple should include a built-in "Lost and need help" feature where the iPod glows and darkens every few seconds to conserve battery life

I'm sorry but that's a fucking riot.
