The traveler sent the SOS through a satellite device created by MAGNUS, an international search and rescue service provider.
The location of the traveler was sent to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and with the assistance of local teams, a helicopter arrived to the spot and evacuated her to the hospital. She was reportedly losing consciousness alternately, and was suspected to be suffering from hypothermia.
