An unresponsive teen was rescued from a “pitch-black” field with the help of a drone, Colorado officials said.

On May 10, a group of intoxicated teens told police their friend, who was “very intoxicated,” walked away and had gone missing, according to a June 14 Facebook post by Lakewood police.

The teens pointed in the general direction of an “open space,” officers said.

One of the agents requested a drone to help with the search, police said.

While using the infrared camera, the drone operator found a “small person laying down in the brush,” officials said.

The field agents were given the teen’s exact location and eventually found him not breathing, police said.

The agents successfully performed CPR, officials said.

Lakewood is about a 10-mile drive southwest of Denver. – The Charlotte Observer/Tribune News Service
