Water Rescue

Three people were reported missing this afternoon in the river at Baumann Park, that's in Cherry Valley, one man was rescued when he was hanging from a tree in the river.

The other two turned up later when they saved themselves. All are expected to be alright but police and fire crews ask we stay out of the water, especially when we're on an inner tube.

Rescue workers are urging common sense, avoid the river while water levels are this high.
