    Two men have been rescued from the Korowai Torlesse Tussocklands Park in Canterbury

    Two men have been rescued from the Korowai Torlesse Tussocklands Park in Canterbury


    About 7.30 yesterday the Rescue Coordination Centre was notified of a PLB activation in the vicinity of Benmore Hut.

    A helicopter was dispatched - but strong winds prevented it reaching the location.

    Police and volunteer LandSAR teams reached the hut about 1.25am and found two men - one with a laceration to his leg.

    Medical assistance was provided but he was unable to walk, so extra LandSAR tams were sent to help stretcher him out.
