Today's winner is from Switzerland.
Driver Robert Ziegler, 37, found himself stranded near the peak at Bergun, Switzerland, after he was directed [by his satellite navigation system] up a 'glorified goat track'.
Unable to go forward or turn around to go back the way he came, he was forced to call the emergency services.
Rescue workers scrambled a heavy lifting helicopter to carry the van and its driver to safety after he dialed for help on his mobile phone.
'I was lost and I kept hoping that each little turn would get me back to the main road. In the end it told me to turn around but of course I couldn't by then,' Mr Ziegler told police.
A fire brigade spokesman said: 'He claims he didn't see any footpath signs but he must have been a pretty fair driver to get that far up a glorified goat track.'

This is far from the first case of which I've heard, where a driver steadfastly concentrated on his GPS system instead of looking out of the bloody window! How one can be so blind to one's surroundings escapes me . . . but in this case, it seems the driver was eventually forced to notice them!
