I filmed this from my apartment in Ma On Sha, Hong Kong last night at 8:20pm.
At around 8:00pm we noticed SoS light signal in Morse Code being sent from across the mountain from us.
Since I knew there was definitely something wrong halfway up there, me and my family decided to call 999 (the equivalent of 911). All the lines were busy so we decided to call the Ma On Sha police station and we finally got an answer.
They immediately sent a GFS (Government Flying Service) Airbus H155 Helicopter to try find the hiker in need. After 30 minutes of searching they finally found him and lifted him up into the helicopter. Throughout the rescue I managed to produce a video out of it and take some photos.
