Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A 25-YEAR-OLD year English tourist was res­cued from a cliff on South Molle Is­land, where he found him­self in trou­ble on Mon­day.

The man was out hik­ing on the is­land when he re­alised he was stuck in his po­si­tion on one of the east­ern cliffs and stranded by the ris­ing tide. He flagged down the crew of a pass­ing ves­sel, who con­tacted po­lice.

The RACQ-CQ res­cue he­li­copter was also tasked to as­sist the man who was un­harmed and safely dropped back to the is­land’s re­sort at 6pm.
