Czech tourist found after one month in the New Zealand bush

By BOHEMIST STAFF

PRAGUE – A Czech tourist was found in the New Zealand wilderness having survived there for one month after her partner fell to his death, according to international media.

The woman was said to have been found on Wednesday living in a park warden’s hut on the snowed-in Routeburn Track, Inspector Olaf Jensen told reporters. According to Associated Press, she was admitted to a local hospital and found to be in good health although shaken from her experience.

The couple embarked on what was supposed to be a three-day 32 kilometer hike on July 26, but Jensen said the couple lost their way as the track markers were buried in deep snow. Then, two days into the hike the man fell down a steep slope and died. The woman then spent the next three nights living outside in freezing conditions before stumbling upon the hut and breaking in, Jensen said. He said she suffered from some frost bite, hypothermia and other minor injuries.
