Two naked sunbathers busted for breaking lockdown rules in Australia

Published on

Two Australians were busted for breaking lockdown rules in New South Wales over the weekend when they were rescued by emergency services from a national park in Australia.

Mick Fuller – New South Wales Police Commissioner stated at a press conference Monday the two men were sunbathing naked on a beach.

They were startled by a deer, ran into the national forest – national park – and got lost

Fuller said.

Not only did they require assistance from SES [State Emergency Service] and police to rescue them, they also both received a ticket for 1,000 dollars

New South Wales Police said in a statement the two men were rescued from Royal National Park, just south of Sydney, on Sunday evening.

They were among 44 people issued with 1,000-Australian-dollar (760-US-dollar) fines on Sunday, police said.

As the health minister said yesterday, it’s difficult to legislate against idiots

Fuller said.

But clearly putting people at risk by leaving home without a proper reason, and I think then not only on top of that, but then getting lost in the national park and diverting important resources away from the health operation – I think they should be embarrassed.

Stay-at-home orders were imposed for Sydney and its surrounding areas on Saturday for an initial two weeks to stem the spread of the Delta strain of coronavirus.

NSW Health recorded 18 new local cases in the last 24-hour reporting period, 88 cases are being treated in the state in total.

Australia has so far managed to stave off large-scale outbreaks of Covid-19 with strict containment measures and closed borders.

The country has recorded around 30,000 cases and 900 deaths since the pandemic began.
