‘Camelpower’ comes to the rescue

In the snowy depths of Russia, it would appear that a tow truck is not always the solution if you get stuck.

Rather than horsepower, it was “camelpower” that rescued this stranded Lada in the city of Saratov following heavy snowfall and blizzards.

The unexpected approach proved successful, although we don’t imagine big mammals will be featuring in any of New Zealand’s roadside recovery operations anytime soon.
