I heard this story this morning and was keen to hear how it ended.

It highlights two things - the importance of being prepared and the dangers of travelling in that area at this time of the year.

I'm really glad everyone was well.
It would have been stressful for everyone.

Everyone was heli-lifted to safety, no serious injuries.

I saw on the TV news last night that the vehicle that was stuck was a red Toyota 80 or 100 series. Large sections of the gravel road had turned into tomato soup. I reckon the `Cruiser will be there for a day or more until they can get something to retrieve it. It was fairly well stuck down to the axels. App on board are safe and sound pus they had three days water and food - but on the thirday day one of them walked back to get help and thats when the chopper went out and rescued them.

Should have read : Apparently all on board are safe and sound, plus they had three days water and food - but on the third day one of the occupants walked back to their base and got help. A chopper was used to rescue all the folks from the stuck cruiser and all are back home.
