Man’s or­deal be­neath pier

The Morning Bulletin - - NATION -

A HOME­LESS man trapped un­der­neath a Mel­bourne pier has told his res­cuers he was there for at least five days.

A spe­cial­ist Metropoli­tan Fire Brigade crew res­cued the man from the Dock­lands pier about 9.30am yes­ter­day af­ter passers-by heard his cries for help.

The man was crouched on a ledge but “wasn’t in a good way men­tally or phys­i­cally”, a crew mem­ber said. They had to coax the man from the ledge and onto the res­cue boat.

The man told his res­cuers he had been there for be­tween five and 12 days.
