A walker was rescued when he used his mobile phone to call for help while buried beneath a snowdrift in Washington state.

Ian Rogers was caught in an avalanche on Granite Mountain and managed to make one call before his phone went flat.

Police were able to narrow down the area from his description and a search team found him suffering from minor hypothermia after four hours.
