Woman and son rescued from glacier

A woman spent nine hours in sub-zero temperatures with her son after losing their snowmobile group on an Icelandic glacier trip, it has been revealed.
Beata and Jeremy Scott, from Edinburgh, used their snowmobile as shelter after they lost their group on the glacier on Sunday, according to reports.
The pair were taken to hospital in Reykjavik after being rescued from the Langjokull glacier.
Mrs Scott told STV News at Six: "I was trying to shelter him from the wind. He's a brave little boy, he started playing word games."
Her husband Mike said he realised when the tour had finished that his wife and son were missing.
He told the programme: "They went off to try and find them. All the time the wind was getting stronger and I was very concerned because of my experience in hills in those sorts of conditions, they couldn't see anything, to find somebody was going to be almost impossible and how was the rescue team going to get in - by walking.
"Those guys are just remarkable."
