Rob fights back from the crash
WHEN third generation Northern territory cattleman Rob Cook set out on a routine mustering job in a chopper, it was a day in the outback like any other.
But when the chopper suddenly fell out of the sky, smashing into the ground, it was the day that changed everything.
This one-time professional bull rider had been in scrapes before – he had miraculously walked away from a previous crash in his beloved Gyro, but this time it was different – this time there was no walking away.
Seven hours later he was rescued from the wreck on one of Australia’s most remote cattle stations, Suplejack Downs Station, and his journey back to life, his young family and the way of life he loved had only just begun.
When The Dust Settles is the extraordinary story of cattleman Rob Cook’s journey back to life from that helicopter accident that left him paralysed.
“I would rather attempt something great and fail, than to do nothing at all and succeed,” he said.
Mr Cook will be inspirational speaker at this year’s Clermont Beef Expo, and will also share his story with men of Clermont and surrounds at the Jugs and Jocks night.
