Woman waits for a month to be rescued in remote NZ hut
A FOREIGN tramper has been waiting for nearly a month at a remote South Island hut to be saved after her partner was killed falling down a slope.
Police say the female tramper from the Czech Republic has been holed up at a hut on the Routeburn Track area since late July after her partner died after falling down a sleep slope.
Otago Lakes Central Area Commander Inspector Olaf Jensen said she told rescuers they had entered the track on July 24 and her partner fell down a steep slope four days later.
She managed to reach him, however, it's believed he died not long after. She then made her way to a hut where she has been since early August.
