Swim­mer in trou­ble

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS - Gold­coast­bul­letin.com.au

I can rhyme, I even have an orig­i­nal poem I’ve been work­ing on ... A 25-YEAR-OLD man try­ing to swim across Talle­budgera Creek had to be res­cued by surf life­savers yes­ter­day.

He be­came dis­tressed when the strong cur­rents took hold of him, caus­ing him to panic.

A Surf Life Sav­ing Queens­land spokesman told the Gold Coast Bul­letin the man “swal­lowed a bit of wa­ter” just be­fore 3pm.

Paramedics were called to the scene near the corner of the Gold Coast Hwy and Talle­budgera Dr but the man de­clined paramedics’ of­fer for as­sis­tance.
