Despite frequent media reports about iPods that kill, an iPod may have saved the life of a Oregon man who got lost in the woods while hunting for mushrooms.

Pini Nou, 25, was on his first outing and got separated from his mother, an experienced mushroom hunter. When Nou did not show up by nightfall, his mother called Benton County authorities for help.

Nou was able to use his cell phone to describe his location to searchers. He was finally found, after 1 a.m., when a member of the search team saw the light from Nou’s iPod.

Nou, lacking a flashlight, had been using the music device for light.
