Fish­er­men saved

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

TWO fish­er­men were left cling­ing to a tree in Peter Faust Dam af­ter their boat sunk on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

The RACQ CQ Res­cue He­li­copter was tasked at 5pm and the crew was quickly able to lo­cate the men, thanks to their dis­tress bea­con.

An RACQ CQ Res­cue rep­re­sen­ta­tive said the two men were found sit­ting in the branch of a dead tree, which was mostly un­der­wa­ter.

The men were res­cued from the tree by an SES boat.
