Sports bra saves hiker stranded in Alps – CNN.com


It’s all fine and well if you’re 36 D Cup size. Asian girls may not be able to attract the same amount of attention.

Sports bra saves hiker stranded in Alps – CNN.com: “BERLIN, Germany (AP) — An American hiker stranded in the Bavarian Alps for nearly three days was rescued after using her sports bra as a signal, police in southern Germany said Monday.

Berchtesgaden police officer Lorenz Rasp said that he helped lift 24-year-old Jessica Bruinsma of Colorado to safety by helicopter on Thursday after she attracted the attention of lumberjacks by attaching her sports bra to a cable used to move timber down the mountain.

‘She’s a very smart girl, and she acted very resourcefully,’ said Rasp. ‘She kept her shirt and jacket for warmth, but thought the sports bra could work as a signal.’

An Alpine rescue team, including five helicopters and 80 emergency workers, had been searching for Bruinsma since she went missing June 16 after losing her way in bad weather while hiking with a friend near the Austrian border.”
