Who rescues the rescuers?

A landslide swept through an Otago camping ground on Saturday, shunting a building which had had up to 42 people sleeping inside, 6 metres across a roadway. Thankfully no one was injured in the incident, and those evacuated from the building were Red Cross emergency teams on a weekend training exercise. I'm betting they hadn't figured that into their planning!

Here's a few more articles from Stuff about the recent crappy weather in the South Island.
