What happened?

Words of wisdom

Always take a PLB into the mountains.

Don’t assume that SAR wont be able to help you. Its pretty amazing what they can fly a helicopter in and complete 3 winching maneuvers in!

Thank you note

Thanks to ACR and the Westpac rescue helicopter SAR that saved our lives.
