‘Incredible Story of Survival’: Woman Rescued After 12 Days in Outback

‘Incredible Story of Survival’: Woman Rescued After 12 Days in Outback”

The trio had told friends and family they were going for a drive south of Alice Springs, but failed to return that night and were reported missing on Saturday, November 23.

She said it appeared Ms McBeath-Riley had gone north of the vehicle and the others had gone west.

For about a week, the group remained near the water, boiling it or sifting it with a shirt to survive, Superintendent Pauline Vicary of the Northern Territory Police told reporters in Alice Springs on Monday.

The air search continued on Sunday afternoon for her companions who are still missing, Alice Springs local Claire Hockridge and South Australian Phu Tran.

"During the day it's just really hot so we dug ourselves under the vehicle".

They used up all their supplies of water, as well as some iced vodkas, biscuits and beef noodles they had in the auto.

They eventually left the vehicle when their supplies ran out, leaving a note on the auto and finding a watering hole about a mile away.

Mr Everingham said the rescue gave emergency responders' hope of finding Ms Hockridge and Mr Tran alive. They eventually spotted Ms McBeath-Riley about 1.5km away from the auto after a local person reported seeing tyre tracks.

A woman missing in the northern outback for nearly a fortnight says she drank water from a cattle watering hole to stay alive and is "worried to death" about her companions.

Though Ms. McBeath-Riley had skilled some vomiting and gastrointestinal issues, he added, she was "in superb spirits and bodily fairly properly". She was airlifted to a roadhouse about 55 miles from Alice Springs, the place paramedics discovered her breaking her quick with beer, cola and french fries, mentioned Andrew Everingham, the regional supervisor for St. John Ambulance.

She said she had assumed her companions had already been found and that "to find out that's not the case is worrying".

"It's quite a diverse terrain".

Police are stepping up their search for the pair.
