    Not as yet. I know the lad was winched up by the helicopter, which didn't stick around once he was on board.

    Yeah me too - paths to waterholes can be treacherous.

    Oh God... good thing someone spotted him.
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed - I do wonder how he went. Hopefully not too serious, but it's quite a drop there, so who knows.

    The dangers of the Aussie bush I'm afraid. Just lucky it's a well driven road and that the waterholes are popular on warm days.

    You'd want to hope so...
    Here's hoping - nothing in the mainstream news-media about it that I've seen.
