Naked man rescued from tree ‘got lost on way to party,’ survived on snails

(CNN) — Two Australian fishermen brought home a bigger catch than they were expecting when they rescued a naked man from a mangrove full of crocodiles.
The man claimed he had gotten lost three days earlier on his way to a New Year’s Eve party. It turned out he was a robbery suspect who had shed his ankle bracelet.
Cam Faust and Kevin Joiner were in a small boat laying crab traps Sunday off East Point, near the city of Darwin, when they heard someone calling for help, according to CNN affiliate 9News.
“We heard this faint-like ‘ahhh, ahhhh.’ (I said) to me mate, ‘Is that guy saying help?’ So we got a bit closer,’” Faust told 9News.
The pair then saw Luke Voskresensky, 40, who was naked and clinging to a tree. He had swollen feet, cuts all over his body and was covered in mud, 9News reported.
The waterways around Darwin, on the Northern Territory’s coast, are known to be inhabited by crocodiles, and the East Point area is a nesting spot for the reptiles.
Voskresensky begged them for water and told the pair that he had been “living off snails” since losing his way on Thursday.
They gave the man a cold beer, and Faust lent the man his shorts. When they got him to solid land, they called an ambulance.
Voskresensky was wanted for allegedly breaching bail over an armed robbery. He broke free from an ankle bracelet that was monitoring his whereabouts, according to 9News.
Voskresensky was arrested and is being treated for exposure at Royal Darwin Hospital.
“He’s in hospital with handcuffs on with two cops babysitting him,” Faust told 9News.
