    8/7/13 Another good rescue from the previous report..


    Title: Trampers located by search team

    A LANDSAR team has now located a group of trampers after they activated their
    emergency locator beacon yesterday in the Ngamoko Range.

    The group was located by a search team just before 12 noon today by the
    Puriri Stream.

    The trampers and search team will be winched out from the range as the
    terrain is too difficult for vehicles to enter.

    "The weather conditions are not great at the moment but we aim to winch them
    out as soon as it is safe to do so," Search Coordinator Sergeant Bill
    Nicholson.

    "Initial observations suggest the trampers are all ok but they will seen by
    medical professionals once they are winched out."

    On that same shitty sunday on the 7th July another rescue.

    At 4:25pm on Sunday the 7th July 2013 Police received a call for assistance
    from a 71 year old female from Katikati. The female had set off on a 1hr
    loop bush walk from the Aongatete Lodge in Katakati at 2pm before mistakenly
    leaving the track and getting lost in dense bush. She was equipped for a day
    tramp with adequate clothing and had registered her self as being on the
    track at the lodge before departing.

    She was able to maintain intermittent cell phone coverage with Police. Police
    Search and Rescue staff and local Land SAR staff were sent to the Aongatete
    Lodge. The Trust Power Tect Rescue helicopter with a Police SAR member and
    Paremedic as crew were sent to the area.

    At approximately 6:15pm the helicopter team spotted the victims cell phone
    light in the bush. She was found to be 1.5km's from the lodge, and was well
    off the track. Her location was relayed to the Land SAR ground teams at the
    lodge and two teams were deployed into the bush to extract her. She was
    located by the ground teams at 8:15pm and was found to be in good health.
    After being given a warm drink and some warm dry clothing she was able to
    walk out of the bush with the Land SAR staff.

    This incident highlights the importance of being adequately equipped before
    setting out in NZ's native bush and how easy it can be to get lost. The lost
    party in this instance did everything right. She alerted people as to her
    intentions by registering herself at the lodge. She was adequately equipped
    and monitored her cell phone usage ensuring battery longevity. She followed
    instructions and stayed in one place before using the cell phone screen light
    to alert the helicopter to her position.

    Police and Land SAR volunteers are very happy that this incident had a happy
    outcome.

    You know something about that one Neckshot? I would be interested to hear the story if there is one to tell.
    Going by the short put up by Dundee, it doesnt sound like it was life threatening. Hope fully not another case of "I pay taxes so Iam entitled to a helicopter ride if I get tired/late "
