Fisherman takes unexpected dip in vehicle

| 18/04/2010

(CNS): A local fisherman was still inside his people carrier on Friday afternoon when it along with his trailer ended up in the water at the West Bay pier. Emergency services were called to the location and the man who was uninjured was rescued safely, however, his vehicle is in much poorer shape. As the fisherman reversed up to the dock to bring in his boat after a day’s fishing, the vehicle apparently slipped from its gear and the man was unable to prevent it from being pulled into the ocean as it rolled down the steep ramp. Heavy equipment was used to haul the vehicle from the ocean and fire crews pulled the trailer out by hand.
