Two stranded on car roof, Sturt Highway
12 March 2012
The Westpac Life Saver was tasked by the State Emergency Service to rescue two people stranded on the roof of their vehicle on the Sturt Highway, 20kms west of Narrandera. Witnesses advised a small Toyota van was surrounded by deep rising water. One person had swum away, unknown if any others were in the van. Lifesaver 3 was tasked but unfortunately required maintenance on aircraft start-up, so other units were tasked to assist.
