An Oregon man employed some creative thinking by attaching his phone to a drone to get cell service after becoming stranded on a snowy road in Willamette National Forest. The motorist was trying to travel across a remote road in the forest when his vehicle, which was not equipped for snowy conditions, got stuck. He soon realized he did not have any cell service and couldn’t call for help.He attached his cell phone to a drone he had with him. He then wrote a text to a friend detailing the situation and his location, hit send and then launched the drone several hundred feet into the sky. The increased elevation allowed his phone to connect to a tower and send the message, which resulted in teams being deployed and assisting him out of his situation.
