Two rescued from floodwaters

AGL Action Rescue Chopper

The AGL Action Rescue Helicopter has winched two people from the roof of their utility which was stranded in fast flowing flood waters in the Kinkuna National Park this morning.

The man and woman were driving through the area with their 15 year old daughter and her 15 year old female friend when their ute was swept up in rising flood waters.

The four climbed onto the back of the ute and phoned for help.

The two girls were rescued using ropes to assist them through the chest deep water but with conditions worsening the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter, which was already overhead, sort permission to winch the two remaining victims to safety.

The couple was reunited with the girls on high ground about 5 kilometres away.
