"A man has been rescued in central Queensland after a crocodile attack and bad weather left him stranded on Townshend Island for four days."

Now I'll admit that crocodiles are rarely seen in the WhitneyZone, but there is an interesting point. He waited 4 days before activating the ELB. Bloke is no princess, but they really are meant to be used - think of the family & needless searching.

Story here.

Good story. I appreciate that he did wait until his provisions ran out before lighting his beacon. He waited until his options of escaping under his own power ran out.

Certainly arguable, by just my opinion.
