According to local media both men were in a very ‘weak condition’ when they were rescued. 

The pair were found in the upper Bahau River which is outside of the North Kalimantan border. 

One of the search team, Taufik Ismail, said both men were in a bad way when they were found. 

‘Both were left with limited logistics,’ he said. 

‘Approximately a week they got lost in the forest, before they were finally found by our members.’ 

Both men were then taken to the Apauping Village Head’s residence where they were looked over by medical staff and are recovering from their ordeal.
