(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION)
Claire Derry, the mother of the British backpacker, Samuel Woodhead, arrives in Australia to see her son following his rescue after being missing for three days.
She was very relieved to see her son, who survived in the Queensland outback for three days by drinking his own urine and contact lens solution.
Police said he was found by a helicopter crew about 5.5km away from the station where he went missing.
Woodhead is expected to be discharged from hospital on Sunday.
