Two Australian men had to be rescued from a forest after they were startled by a deer while nude sunbathing on a beach and became lost. Yahoo reports the men, age 30 and 49, called for help about 6 p.m. Sunday after they became lost in the Royal National Park south of Sydney.
“Unbelievably, we saw two men sunbaking naked on a beach on the South Coast. They were startled by a deer, ran into the national … park and got lost.” –Police Commissioner Mick Fuller
Their rescue involved police aircraft, the State Emergency Service and ambulance officers. The pair were fined 1,000 Australian dollars ($759) each for breaching a stay-home pandemic order that restricted them to Sydney. The younger man was found “naked and carrying a backpack” while the older man was “partially clothed” the police statement said. Fuller described the pair as idiots:
“Clearly putting people at risk by leaving home without a proper reason, … then getting lost in the national park and diverting important resources away from the health operation, I think they should be embarrassed.”
