The last thing Olly Dale remembers before seeing a rescue helicopter flying up the valley was having lost all feeling in his feet as he got colder and colder.
The 17-year-old, rescued along with three friends in the Ruahine Ranges on Sunday, later learned medics believed he was just an hour from death.
And his friends weren't much better off.
"They gave us two hours before they were lifting multiple bodies out."
Tyvärr... Med anledning av Folkhälsomyndighetens nya råd, NOLS Wilderness Medicine sjukvårdskursen den 20-22 november i Lindholmen ställs in.
Ni som har anmält er till kursen har fått mail direkt från Crossing Latitudes.
Vi hoppas att kunna erbjuda en sjukvårdskurs i Lindholmen den 28-30 maj, 2021.
