NSW Police say that a Mullumbimby driver was rescued in storm water on Friday.
At about 10pm last Friday (February 19) a 77 year old man from Mullumbimby was driving his his car along Upper Wilsons Creek Road.
He attempted to cross a flooded causeway on Upper Wilsons Creek Road, however due to the rushing water his vehicle was swept off the causeway. The vehicle, with the driver still inside, was washed about 100 metres from the causeway, getting lodged in about one metre of water.
A local resident alerted Police and the Volunteer Rescue Association (VRA).
The VRA secured ropes to trees deploying an operator into the water. The male was returned to shore uninjured.
