Comment on Tourist perished: Has Coroner’s recommendation been followed? by Cara.

I don’t care how experienced a bush walker you are, trekking at the hottest time of the year is just plain stupid. Literally anything can (and in this case, did) go wrong.
There are so many ways around this that can easily be solved with the person doing the most basic of google search.
I feel for the poor woman and her family, I genuinly do, but I also think she was [silly] to go hiking in severe heat with no sat phone and or GPS, or telling literally anyone when and where she was going and when to notify the police if she hadn’t returned.
