Three children rescued at Glenmaggie

THREE children have been rescued from a Glenmaggie riverbank by airwing overnight, after their inflatable donut was swept away in the Macalister River.Police understand the children, from the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, were staying with family at a Gells Road campground when they launched an inflatable donut into the Macalister River about 7pm.The inflatable got caught in the flow of the river and was taken downstream, and eventually caught on a rock.The trio, aged 15, 13 and 10-years-old, were all able to climb onto the opposite riverbank.They walked upstream until they could see their campsite across the water but due to difficult terrain couldn’t leave the area.Police also couldn’t make their way to the children on foot and family members were unable to reach them due to swift flowing water and slippery rocks.Local police attended, along with the Water Police and Airwing to coordinate the rescue.All three children were safely rescued by the airwing and reunited with their families, and no-one was injured.
