Heroes tell of ordeal Hiker rescued from freezing remote gorge By MEAGAN DILLON A NORWEGIAN tourist rescued in the remote Central Australian desert would have died if he had not had an EPIRB distress beacon, rangers said yesterday. West MacDonnell chief district ranger Chris Day, 50, said it was bitterly cold when the 60-year-old tourist became distressed on the Larapinta Trail last Sunday. He nearly drowned when he tried to cross a pool of water and his backpack was pulling him under, he said. Mr Day said the tourist was a very experienced walker but didnt realise he had wandered off the steep track. He had been trekking for four days but had walked twice the distance recommended by rangers. The hiker activated his EPIRB at about 6pm after getting lost in the most difficult section of the 220km trail. Mr Day and fellow ranger Jessica Bonanni left Alice Springs three hours later and drove as close as they could to the signal. But it was another 5km hike . . . from where the 4WD track ended, he said. Mr Day said the pair hiked for more than four hours but were forced to stop at about 5am because the tight gorge was difficult to navigate in the dark. He said they knew the tourist was alive when they heard him shout out, but couldnt get to him because the water at the bottom of the gorge was too deep. We would have ended up with hypothermia, he said. The rescue team waited for a helicopter and started an air search but Mr Day said it was simply too hard to see into the gorge. The tourist eventually found them when they resumed the ground search, he said. He heard our voices, he said. Mr Day said the EPIRB had saved the tourists life because without it nobody would have known he was missing until he failed to turn up at the pick-up point days later. This 4WD crashed into the VIP stand at the Paspaley Beach Polo event in Broome yesterday Picture: KARN CALVERT Gatecrasher interrupts polo A FOUR-wheel-drive has crashed into a VIP marquee at a Paspaley-run polo tournament on world-famous Cable Beach in Broome. The vehicle, towing a trailer with a trail bike on the back, careered into the tent yesterday afternoon during semi-finals games. The vehicle narrowly missed people sitting at tables inside and hit a podium. Broome Police said there were no reports of casualties at this stage. Witnesses watched in shock as the 4WD was driven across the field straight for the VIP marquee. Polo entrepreneur Janek Gazecki said he warned guests over the loudspeaker to move out of the way. One guest who asked not to be identified said she feared the vehicle was heading straight for the table at which she and her friend had been sitting. I thought, my God, hes coming for our table, the woman said. I stood up and started trying to get as far away as possible. But she said the vehicle veered at the last moment. It struck the barricade in front of commentator Jim Hilspon, whos microphone was broken and arm injured by a crashing fence. New Zealand polo player Aaron Vowles pulled the driver from the vehicle. WA Polo Club President Greg Johnson said: There was an incident earlier but police cleared it up and no one was hurt.
