SES volunteers rescued in floods
TWO Lockyer Valley SES volunteers had to be rescued after their boat capsized in floodwaters.
A Department of Community Safety spokesman said the volunteers had transported an elderly lady to paramedics when they hit a tree stump near the corner of Thomas Road and Murphys Creek Road, in the Upper Lockyer area, about 6.10pm on Sunday.
Both were wearing life jackets and were able to cling onto a tree branch until a rescue team - which included six crews of firefighters as well as paramedics - arrived at the scene.
They were treated at the scene. The elderly woman was taken to Toowoomba Base Hospital.
