Pair rescued after boat flips off Tweed Heads

TWO men have been rescued after their boat overturned off the coast of Pottsville, south of the Gold Coast this afternoon.

It’s understood the boat was on its way to Melbourne when it capsized shortly before 1.30pm.

The two men on board managed to escape uninjured.


They have since been brought back to shore by Tweed Heads rescue crews.

It’s the second boat to capsize today, after a boat flipped and sank off Cape Moreton, north of the Gold Coast, about 7am, killing one and leaving two others stranded with hypothermia.
