GPS Technology Helps Officers Find Victims in a Quarry

Dane County deputies found a car that plunged into a quarry through GPS technology.

The accident, late Wednesday, killed the quarry operator's son and injured five of his friends.

Middleton police say they received a cell phone 911 call from one of the victims but officers couldn't determine the location of the call due to reception problems.

Middleton police transferred the call to Dane County 911, which used GPS technology to provide the coordinates.

Officers went to two quarries nearby. At the Yahara Materials site, an officer climbed the fence and soon heard the survivors yelling and shining a flashlight.
