The ODT reports on an Austrian tourist who had to be rescued after going tramping wearing street shoes with a sleeping bag, a foam sleeping roll and a can of baked beans.
Search & Rescue called him naive.
“The man did not think he was in any trouble, but we don’t think he had an appreciation for conditions.”
You can’t stop people doing stupid things when they don’t know what they don’t know.
But is it possible to train people to think about consequences before they do things when they don’t know what they’re doing?
