Injured bushwalker’s two day crawl to safety

MACQUARIE NATIONAL NEWS

An injured bushwalker ended up crawling for two days before being rescued north-west of Brisbane.

54-year-old Neil Parker was hiking alone on Mount Nebo on the weekend when he slipped and fractured his left leg at the top of a waterfall and fell six metres into the water below.

With a wrist injury and fractured leg, he began a three-kilometre crawl to safety.

When his ex-wife raised the alarm he was winched from a clearing by a rescue helicopter and taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane for treatment.
