Luke Shambrook, an 11 year old autistic boy was rescued Tuesday after spending four nights alone and lost in a dense forest in Melbourne, Australia.
Shambrook was spotted from a police helicopter before noon on Tuesday in the Fraser National Park in Victoria state, only 3 kilometers from his family’s camp ground from which he disappeared Friday morning.
More than 120 searchers had searched the land since Friday morning, with major fears that he could have drowned in a nearby lake.
Police Commander Rick Nugent said.
“We are told that Luke is well, that he is exhausted, he’s suffering hypothermia and he’s also dehydrated,” Nugent told reporters.
Paramedics were assessing him, Nugent said. His parents were overwhelmed, he said.
