Tourists Found Alive After Two Weeks Lost In Australian Outback
Sydney, Dec 3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 3rd Dec, 2019 ) :A man and woman have been rescued after surviving two weeks in Australia's arid outback on little more than vodka, groundwater and biscuits, but a third person is still missing, police said Tuesday.
After three days staying put and waiting for a rescue, the group feared supplies were dwindling and two of them decided to walk along a property fence line in the hope of finding help.
McBeath-Riley told public broadcaster ABC that the trio -- accompanied by their blue Staffordshire terrier Raya -- had survived by drinking pre-mixed vodka drinks and water from a hole dug for cattle, eating biscuits and sheltering in a hole dug under her car.
But the third person, 46-year-old Claire Hockridge, has not been seen since splitting from Phu two days ago.
Police were "hopeful that she's still in that condition," Vicary added, as her colleagues resumed an aerial search.
