"On Sunday, Tasmania Police told of the efforts to rescue Ms Walker, which involved risking the lives of emergency crews in hazardous conditions at the crash site, 100 metres below the summit at West Portal, near Federation Peak and the Western Arthur Range."
Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.
