Ambulance called to car bogged in mud since yesterday

UPDATE 5.30pm

TWO vehicles with families on board have been rescued after they became bogged following heavy rain yesterday.

A Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter spokesperson said the two vehicles were located around 12pm in the Mebbin National Park. 

"It appears a local farmer came across the group and walked them to a farm house and contacted police after the helicopter returned to base," the spokesperson said.

"All were well with no injuries and no medical treatment needed."

The spokesperson said police took the two families back to their vehicles to assist with their recovery.



AMBULANCE crews are currently attending to a group of people whose car has been bogged in mud since yesterday.

A NSW Ambulance spokesperson said two ambulance crews were at Mebbin State Forest, on a dirt track off Kyogle Rd and Mebbin Forest Rd, attending to one female, three males and an eight-year-old child.

They said the occupants had no warm clothes and had been stuck in their vehicle since yesterday.

The occupants have run out of phone battery and the food and water they had been surviving on, but have no injuries.

A Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter spokesman said a chopper had been called to the incident area earlier this afternoon but had since returned to base due to poor weather.

It is understood the helicopter witnessed two vehicles stuck, however, this has not been confirmed.

An all-terrain vehicle is now being organised by police to assist.

More to come.
