Er­ica man res­cued

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

A 58-year-old Er­ica man was one of three peo­ple res­cued early on Christ­mas Day at Venus Bay.

The Po­lice Air­wing was called to res­cue three peo­ple who were stranded in shal­low mud on Tues­day.

Po­lice were told the two men and a woman set off to kayak through An­der­sons In­let on Christ­mas Eve in the mid-af­ter­noon.

They be­came stuck in mud and, af­ter sev­eral hours, the kayak­ers found they were still un­able to move and called 000.

Around mid­night, Po­lair reached the trio and winched them to safety at In­ver­loch, where they were met by po­lice and paramedics.

The Er­ica man, to­gether with his 29-year-old com­pan­ions from Bendigo, were all un­in­jured.
