ONE YEAR AGO...
THE odds were stacked at “10 million to one”, but that’s all Ruben McDornan needed as VMR Whitsunday’s Mal Priday and his crew plucked him from the water.
Ruben was the sole survivor of the trawler Dianne, which sank north of 1770 taking six lives.
At 7am, Mr Priday’s wife Linda Priday, heard a desperate cry for help, and a quick scan of the sea led to an epic rescue mission unlike any they had ever experienced before.
Mr Priday said the experience could only be described as a miracle.
