Trek Killers Caught

September 15, 2013 by  

Trek Killers Caught, The Black Cat Track tour guide yesterday broke her silence to tell of the “senseless” massacre of last week’s deadly Papua New Guinea ambush.

“I’m not a hero,” said Ms King. “I did my job.”

The Aussie expat said she was “deeply saddened” by the attack.

Two men were hacked to death, six porters hospitalised and eight Australian trekkers robbed and beaten on the historic World War II trail.

The mother of two who was hailed for her bravery and courage spoke publicly for the first time of the ill-fated night.

She stood up to the drug-crazed killers in the midst of the bloodbath and led her group back to safety.

“Everybody on that hill – the porters, trekkers, the rescue team – they’re all the heroes, it’s not me.”

The guardian angel has held a hospital bedside vigil in Angau Hospital in Lae where six porters still await surgery.
