Joo-hee Han, a South Korean backpacker, survived getting lost for 6 nights in the Australian wilderness.

 

The 25-year-old backpacker went for a walk at Mount Tyson in Queensland, Australia on Thursday, May 31st.

 

Upon reaching the summit, Han proceeded to take photographs before slipping and falling from a cliff.

 

Queensland Ambulance Services flight paramedic Hannah Gaulke said that Han became unconscious for approximately 5 hours after falling. After Han regained her consciousness, she managed to find her way out of the ravine and to a rocky waterfall. “She managed to crawl and scrape her way through the bushland,” said Gaulke, “which was really tough terrain.”

 

Han waited 6 nights nearby the rocky waterfall.

 

Gaulke added, “She couldn't actually proceed any further and she had no way to get back out and that's where she stayed for days.”

 

According to the Queensland police, there was no missing persons report on Han until after 5 days of her initial disappearance.

 

The police launched a search for the missing backpacker. On Thursday, June 7th, the Australian police and soldiers cut through the forest and found her in her long trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, and a raincoat.

 

The rescue helicopter transferred Han to the nearest hospital in Tully.

The Police Inspector Steve Kersley said that Han’s raincoat helped her survive as it kept her warm until the rescuers arrived.

 

Kersley praised Han for surviving 6 days without food in the wilderness. “Six days is a long time to be lost in the bush, particularly when you've got no bush skills,” said Kersley, “she's done well to survive."

 

According to the flight paramedic Hannah Gaulke, “Han was actually in really good condition, so she had no significant injuries… she was in good spirits.”
