BANGKOK, August 18 (Itar-Tass) - Tourist from Voronezh (a city in central European Russia) Yevgeny Luchina, who for six days was wandering on the Indonesian island of Java, awaiting help, has been discharged from hospital and feels well, the Russian Embassy to the Republic of Indonesia told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
Rescuers evacuated the Russian from Mount Merapi on August 15. He was taken to a Jogjakarta hospital for rehabilitation. “I’ve been released from hospital, escaped with a couple of scars. I apologise to all for the trouble and sleepless nights. I’m sorry that I alerted Indonesian services and my native embassy in the country that have shown an example of excellent interaction,” Yevgeny wrote on his page in the VKontakte social network.
The 25-year-old resident of Voronezh, Yevgeny Luchina, went missing while climbing the largest active volcano on the Java Island - Mount Merapi. The man went hiking a few days ago alone. After a while he sent his girlfriend a text message asking her to arrange for help. Later the Russian sent another SMS message in which specified his whereabouts - somewhere near a river. The rescuers managed to find him and evacuate from the mountain only several days after the search operation began.
