Heat-Seeking Drone Search a First in BC
Seven missing skiers and snowboarders were rescued by search crews in BC’s Interior after a long night out in the elements near Kamloops.
Crew members say the incident was entirely avoidable.
The last two missing skiers were located just after 4 a.m. but not before spending the night in frigid temperatures and waist deep snow in the backcountry.
