A man who crashed his car into a garden fence was later found freezing to death in a field thanks to a police thermal drone, which led to his rescue.
The man was driving in West Bank, Crowland, on Friday when he was involved in a single vehicle crash.
He later headed in the direction of the town centre before being located in the middle of a field in the pitch black, unconscious and suffering from hypothermia.
He had been in the field for a long period of time when he was located.
Lincolnshire Police said: “Almost certainly a life saved.”
A spokesman added that the man, who was located at 10.40pm, had “sustained a minor injury and the officers were personally thanked for their assistance”.
