A road-tripping German woman was rescued from the treacherous Norwegian wilderness when she set up a Tinder account and enlisted help from one of her matches, according to a report Friday.
Lonia Haeger, a pro kite surfer and self-styled adventurer, was traveling through the remote Nordkapp region in a camper van with two friends when they became stranded on the side of a mountain by a deluge of freezing rain, according to Central European News.
She soon learned emergency responders were too far away to help them quickly, so she set up the location-based dating app to hunt for a nearby, potentially helpful bachelor.

May not have been the kind of plowing originally intended.
Somebody should let Greta Thumberg know. Such enormous carbon footprint on a wintry Norwegian countryside and in the name of such mundane adventurism, should not be tolerated.
If you look at his account, the man is a Viking god.
He looks like someone who would go save a damsel in distress, just because.
That’s what I thought too. I guess we just don’t get out enough. Lol. ...
Did she “pay” him?
Worked in the oilfields of Wyoming and North Dakota years ago. Each winter people died due to car failure. Those that died were just a few miles from a main road and just thought they could walk out to help. Exposure killed them. Those that were many miles away knew they could not walk out and just stayed in their car or truck. They did not die.
In my car I had a sleeping bag, food and water. I could last days if necessary.
