Two Czech tourists, Pavlina Pizova and Ondrej Petr, started their outdoor adventure in Fiordland National Park on New Zealand's south island on July 26, but soon into their excursion the snow and low clouds hampered their visibility and turned their trip into a nightmare. The duo was forced to spend their first night in the park exposed to the elements, and on the following day, Petr lost his footing on an ice slope and fell to his death. Pizova spent her second night in the park, keeping a vigil over the body and on the third day, she found a park warden's cabin and broke into it. After moving her friend's remains to a site near the remote hut, she simply waited for help to come. For the better part of a month, Pizova waited for help which did not arrive, as none of the local authorities or park staff knew of the predicament. It wasn't until a Czech Consul named Vladka Kennett spotted "a random Facebook post" from Pizova's worried relatives, that a search was initiated.
