Two boaties rescued from beach after boat takes on water

Two men have been rescued by the Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter overnight, after their boat became waterlogged, in rough conditions, north of Burnett Heads.

The rescue helicopter crew was tasked by Queensland Police Service (QPS) to search the coastline north of Bundaberg, just after 9.20pm, last night (Sunday 30 May).

The pair, one teenager and the other a man in his forties, had managed to make it to the beach, where they started a signal fire and waited for the rescue helicopter to locate them.

The pilot was able to land the rescue chopper on the beach.

The men were assessed by the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedic, before being airlifted back to the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue base.

They suffered no injuries in the incident.
