Kayaker is rescued on Lake Wellington

A MAN was rescued by the RAAF's search and rescue helicopter after becoming stranded on Lake Wellington on Friday afternoon.

The 27-year-old man, from Lalor, was fishing for carp with friends at Bay Rd, The Heart, and decided to go out in his kayak.

About lunchtime the weather changed, and the man was pushed out from the shore towards the middle of the lake.

Water police and the air wing conducted a search of the lake with the RAAF helicopter.

The man was winched to safety uninjured after about two hours on the water.
