A 68 year old man’s been found floating 2.5km off the coast at Indented Head, and 1.5km away from his empty tinnie

The vessel was located around 9:30am Monday doing circles in the water.

Inspector James Dalton said the man’s lifejacket was the difference between life and death 

“Without a doubt he is alive due to the fact he was wearing a life jacket, those people who noticed something was wrong called the police and provided that large-scale response.”

“To locate him so far away from his tinnie and so far off shore is like finding a needle in a haystack.”

“It was brilliant work by our members who really demonstrated their expertise on the water today.”

“We understand this man had been in the water for about six hours.”
