The hiker drags himself through the rugged forests of Australia for two days after breaking his leg and arm



BRISBANE, Australia – One hiker said Wednesday he had crawled through the rugged Australian forest area for two days, with a broken leg and a broken arm, after falling 20 feet into a waterfall and then throwing his phone into a stream.

Neil Parker, 54, recovered at a hospital in Brisbane after being rescued on Tuesday by a search helicopter crew from Mount Nebo on the outskirts. He expected a three-hour hike.

Parker found himself out of range of a deep gutter and then fumbled as he tried to put his phone back in his pocket and drop it into the stream. [19659002] "Now I have no way of communicating with the outside world, and I think the only way to be saved is self-rescue," Parker said.

He succeeded, his left leg which was broken, seemed to be below the knee with walking sticks and snake-bite bands, which he carried with him on his walking-set, and his left arm was also broken over the wrist.

Parker said he was dragging himself along the creek to a more ordinary trail and took two days to cover a distance he had covered in 40 minutes on Sunday.

I became very emotional because I thought that's not a nice way to die just lying here, "he said.

A search was launched on Monday after he did not show up for work and his boss called his ex-wife who sounded the alarm. Parker's former spouse noted that he had told friends that he was considering a walk to the waterfall.
