Man lost on the frozen North Sea rescued after woman spots him on her webcam

A woman watching the sunset on a webcam who spotted a German man lost on the frozen North Sea probably saved his life by alerting authorities, police have said.

The man was walking on the ice near St Peter-Ording in northern Germany when he became disoriented.

He used a camera to flash for help, gaining the attention of the woman on her computer, hundreds of miles away in southern Germany.
