Keep going Shaun, not too far now, you can do this.
The Trek has stopped at Eoro Creek for the night. Shaun is not feeling well so have made the decision to chopper him out of this location and his daughter will join him.
Update 8th July 2019
Trek 1155: Not such good news for this group of 3. Inesa Huremovi was air lifted out of Nauro due to slipping over and damaging her knee. The remaining two trekkers father and daughter, Leila and Shaun were doing ok until Shaun got sick around Dump 1/Templeton’s Crossing area. At Eora Creek a decision was made that he could no longer continue and a helicopter went in to pick him up. Leila did not want to leave her father so she decided not to finish her trek and flew back to Port Moresby today to be with her father. News just in is that he is ok and was released from PIH and taken back to the Gateway Hotel.
