Another individual has been found alive two weeks after getting stranded in Australia’s outback. Phu Tran, 40, was found on Tuesday on a remote homestead in the Northern Territory (NT), police said.
Mr. Tran was a part of a trio who became stranded when their vehicle stalled out in a riverbed on 19 November. They later split up to find help. Tamra McBeath-Riley, 52, was found on Sunday, however, her partner, 46-year-old Claire Hockridge, stays missing.
Mr. Tran was found by a farmer who was performing a check on the tremendous property – referred to locally as a station – about 160km (100 miles) south of the town of Alice Springs, NT Police said. He had survived by discovering groundwater and would be treated for heat introduction in a medical clinic, they included.
The group and Ms. McBeath-Riley’s pet, Raya, had been making a trip from Alice Springs to go on a climb when they became impeded in the Hugh River.
Ms. McBeath-Riley said the group had remained by the vehicle for around three days trying to free it. The group inevitably chose to separate to find support. Mr. Tran and Ms. Hockridge wanted to head towards a roadway, while Ms. McBeath-Riley remained in the zone, figuring her pet would not endure a long walk.
