The Fall Guy

Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt are being silly in a film take of the ‘80s television series: The Fall Guy. He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy, and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?

Getting groovy with Ino

Originally from NZ, Ino Pio is proud to have called the Northern Rivers home for the last decade. When visiting Byron Bay or Ballina you will be sure to see him playing around town.

A woman who almost drowned while swimming at Salt Beach south of Kingscliff yesterday (Sunday) afternoon remains in a critical condition in the Tweed Hospital after being airlifted there from the scene.

The woman was unconscious when dragged from the surf by duty liefsavers who commenced CPR with the help of members of the public.

A local ambulance paramedic who arrived also began treatment before the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter’s medical crew stabilised her then flying her to the hospital.

No further details are available.
