When a driver called 911 about a motorcycle going airborne along a darkened stretch of Interstate 95 before dawn, authorities had trouble finding the rider.

Daniel William Brinson II had been thrown into thick underbrush, making him almost invisible to searchers, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.  

But with the help of an infrared camera in the Broward County Sheriff’s helicopter, deputies and paramedics were able to rescue the injured motorcyclist.
