Ferry master saves man
POLICE praised the heroism of a ferry master who dived into to Brisbane River to save the life of a man thrown from his boat at Moggill last night.
The 79-year-old man was in his 5m tinnie when it collided with the cable which pulls the Moggill Ferry, throwing him into the water. more
That would certainly liven up the crew on the ferry, which I used only about an hour prior to the accident.
I suppose it's an idyllic life on the river, but when you only travel backward and forward across the river on a punt it's a bit stultifying.
Some time ago the ferry broke free, now that would have been a bit of excitement for the jaded crew! (Not to mention dealing with the angry passengers who needed to be at point B, not drifting down the river on a runaway punt!)
