London, June 21 : God bless those who made the bra - these might be the words American hiker Jessica Brown must be chanting after she was rescued from a mountain fall.
The 24-year-old was given up for dead by mountain rescuers but was later saved when she threw her bra into a cable car.
Jessica Brown had fallen off a ledge in the mountains and was stranded injured for 70 hours in freezing temperatures.
Mountain rescue teams had been looking for her in the wrong place and gave up the search because they believed she'd fallen to her death.
But Jessica spotted a cable car on its way up the mountain and quickly flung her bra into a container carrying food as it passed her.
Workers higher up the peak realised the undies must have been thrown in as a message and sent out a search party.
"It certainly beats," The Sun quoted a rescuer, as saying.
