Two fishermen have rescued a naked fugitive whom they found sitting on a tree branch in an Australian crocodile habitat.
Cam Faust said Jan. 6 he and fellow recreational fisher Kev Joiner heard Luke Voskresensky, 40, yell for help on Jan. 3 as they set crab traps from their dinghy in mangroves on the outskirts of the northern city of Darwin.
Faust said Voskresensky — who was covered in mud, cuts and insect bites — explained that he had been lost for four days, survived by eating snails and had used his clothes “for bits and pieces over the way.”
“It didn’t make sense to us,” Faust said, referring to the explanation for his nudity. “He had a nest made up in the tree, and he was only laying a meter above the water and there were crocs in the water so he has done well to survive.”
Police said Voskresensky had been free on bail after being charged with armed robbery, multiple aggravated assaults, deprivation of liberty and stealing. He had cut off his electronic monitoring device and attempted to evade police, they said. (AP)
