The story sounds to me as highly improbable.

just as 4 planes hijacked on same day. Or winning the $168million MegaMillions; which I will tomorrow.

When flying out, you keep the minimum of gear you'll need to complete the assignment with you as cabin luggage.

thus, no need for several lenses, macro, 50-200mm, 14-50, 150-300mm, etc.
Just get a Pentax K-x kit 14mm&300mm for $750. or a Canon SX30, or a Fuji HS10.

the gear, on person, and either have a backup of the images left with someone on the location, or mailed to yourself on DVD's back home.

copy all images to laptop; burn to DVDs, mail it home. keep media in carry-on.
that guy was a Shmoe.
