Man winched after kayak capsize

He was wearing a life jacket and had managed to call triple zero, using a mobile phone he was carrying inside a waterproof case. 
He was in the water for approximately two hours and had drifted around one kilometre from the shore, when the Bundaberg RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter winched him from the ocean.

The aeromedical crew landed back on the island where the man was then assessed by paramedics from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS). 

He did lose his kayak, but has since returned to his campsite.
