CW Saves Man with Broken Leg

An army reservist who broke his leg on a beach used Morse code with his torch to signal for help.
Sgt Tim Robinson was walking on beaches in Seatown, near Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK when he slipped on some seaweed.

As it was getting dark, Sgt Robinson, who was visiting from Derbyshire, used his torch to signal "SOS" in Morse code to his wife, more than a mile away.

The 54-year-old reservist, who has done three tours in the Middle East, is now recovering in Dorset County Hospital.
