A Search and Rescue NSW boat capsized after trying to move a grounded houseboat.GEORDIE COWAN August 24, 2014 3:02pm
Two people received a shock but were uninjured when a Search and Rescue NSW boat capsized on Friday afternoon.
The relatively new boat was trying to relocate a grounded houseboat from the bank of the Murray River near the Echuca East boat ramp on Friday when it capsized about 5pm.
The two people on board escaped without injury, but the boat was not as lucky.
All of the on-board electronic equipment was ruined and the boat was salvaged after about four hours.
Marine Rescue NSW Moama unit commander Glenn Corr said an independent regional controller would investigate the incident, which was generally a three to seven-day process.
‘‘Because it’s a commercial vessel, we’ve got to run through the processes and until we’ve got our findings we can’t make any comment,’’ he said.
‘‘We can confirm that an incident did occur, no one was injured and it is being investigated through AMSA, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.’’
Police are currently at a location in Kaarimba examining what they say appears to be an improvised explosive device.
