Sunshine Coast Daily "The AGL Rescue Helicopter, which had been conduction a beach patrol on its return to base from Brisbane, spotted the surfer in trouble." by Patrick Williams

'FOOTAGE of a struggling surfer being plucked from a rip near the Maroochy River by the passing AGL Rescue Helicopter has reaffirmed calls for beachgoers to be more cautious out on the water.

'On Sunday about 5pm the man, aged in his 30s, got caught in rips near the mouth of the Maroochy River and was unable to make his way to shore.'
