Car Recovery

An unfortunate incident happened on Tuesday morning when Mr. Ken Little, an employee of Woolworths, arrived at work and parked his car on the western end of the Plaza car park. He alighted from the car and walked toward his place of employment when the car commenced to roll forward and went straight into Kooloonbung Creek. It floated for a short while and then drifted towards the centre of the river and sank. The car was later recovered with Ken Chapman securing a rope to it and then being towed out by means of the boat ramp by the N.R.M.A. service unit in conjunction with Harvey and Wheeler.
