A MAN trapped be­tween rocks in a rapidly ris­ing Queens­land creek on Wed­nes­day night was given a piece of gar­den hose to breathe through while res­cuers fought to free him. The 25-year-old be­came struck while swim­ming in the creek at Marl­bor­ough, north of Rock­hamp­ton, on Wed­nes­day evening, an emer­gency ser­vices spokes­woman said. ‘‘ He be­came sub­merged and trapped around the waist when rocks shifted.’’
