Ves­sel in dis­tress

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
