Three rescued from CQ floodwaters

A WOMAN rescued from fast-flowing floodwaters last night has been released from hospital this morning.

She was one of three people rescued by Rockhampton firefighters during a night of high drama.

The first incident happened about 10.40pm on Poison Creek Road, Bouldercombe.

A man in his 40s had attempted to drive his vehicle through a section of the road which was covered by about half a metre of water and became stranded.

Fire crews assisted the uninjured man to safety.

At 10.50pm on San Jose Road, Marmor, a woman contacted authorities after water began to inundate her property.

Firefighters with the assistance of SES volunteers and police were able to assist the woman who was knee deep in water to safety using a raft.

She was not injured.

At 11.35pm fire crews then assisted a woman at Stanwell who had driven her vehicle into floodwaters on Stanwell-Waroula Road.

It is understood her vehicle was pushed a short distance sideways by the floodwaters.

Fire crews were able to assist the woman to safety.

She was not injured but was taken by ambulance to Rockhampton Hospital with a medical condition.

The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service is again reminding motorists to not attempt to cross flooded roadways.
