CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. – Duncan Moffat, found yesterday near Sayward, is now recovering in Victoria, according to multiple news reports.
Moffat’s uncle Bill McNab said he had had a broken shoulder, ribs, a partially collapsed lung, and a broken leg. He said his nephew survived on apples that rolled within his reach and a bottle of Gatorade.
A hunter found the pickup truck Moffat borrowed from his father and called 911. Moffat had gone off the road 12 metres down, around a curve on the highway south of Sayward.
Reports said Moffat believed he was stuck in the truck for five days.
