Two naked men had to be rescued by the State Emergency Service (SES) in News South Wales after they got lost in a forest on Monday. The two had been sunbathing naked on a nearby beach when they got startled by a deer and ran into the forest.
Once inside the forest, they got lost and required the help of the SES.
New South Wales Police Commissioner, Mick Fuller, spoke at a news briefing on Monday. He said that, not only did the police rescue the two men but they also fined them for breaking Sydney's lockdown rules.
New lockdown rules were put into place after a small outbreak of Covid-19 cases were traced to the Bondi area in Sydney. CNN has confirmed that the patients have the Delta variant, first identified in India.
Asked for further information about the two men, Fuller said it's difficult to legislate against idiots.
"But clearly putting people at risk by leaving home without a proper reason, and I think then not only on top of that, but then getting lost in the national park and diverting important resources away from the health operation, I think they should be embarrassed."
Both men were fined. The deer hasn't been seen again.
