When 17-year-old Samuel Lethbridge didn’t return home, his family had a hunch that something was wrong.
Unknown to them, the teenager had crashed his car heading north on the Pacific Highway at Crangon Bay in NSW.
After almost 24 hours searching on foot, Samuel’s father took drastic action, hiring a helicopter in the hopes of finding his missing son.
“I can’t leave him out there without looking, so we hired the helicopter and found him within 10 minutes”.
Samuel has now undergone surgery and is recovering in hospital.
