Buschvitz (dpa/mv) - A powerful mobile phone battery saved a woman from an emergency who got lost while hiking on the island of Rügen. As a police spokeswoman said on Tuesday in Stralsund, the incident occurred on Tuesday night near Buschvitz, north of Bergen (West Pomerania-Rügen).
The woman was able to be freed from her plight about an hour and a half later. She got so lost in the mud that she had to be freed from the swampy ground. Her car was about three miles away. The woman was taken to hospital in an ambulance because of mild hypothermia. The Ossensee lies west of the Großer Jasmunder Bodden.
