Four found safe after boat crash


Four men whose boat was reported missing off the coast near Wujal Wujal have been found safe and well.

At about 11am Saturday, the men left the Wujal Wujal area in a small dinghy possibly headed towards the Hope Islands or Pickersgill Reef and were reported overdue last night when they failed to return.

The vessel was located at around 9.20am Sunday after it had run aground on Cairns Reef.

All four men on board have been airlifted out and transported to Cooktown Hospital for assessment.
