Vessel in distress
IN THE early part of last week, police were informed of a vessel reportedly overturned and on fire. Police located “Bella Jade” which had been drifting and lost an engine. QAS and QFRS also responded along with the VMR. Inquiries established that a small fire had been extinguished by the occupier of the vessel and that the man on board may have suffered smoke inhalation and a bump to the head. He declined medical assistance and no further action was required.
