A Nowra man has been rescued by helicopter suffering mild hypothermia after getting lost on a solo bush walk in rugged and remote country.
The 33 year old set out from a spot near Braidwood on Sunday for a walk through the Morton and Budawang National Parks.
All went well until yesterday afternoon when the man became disorientated and he was forced to activate his personal EPIRB distress beacon.
The Westpac Rescue helicopter found the man at the base of a steep ravine 7KM west of Pigeon House Mountain.
Former paramedic and survival specialist David O'Toole says it's another case of where EPIRBS can save lives.
