AMBULANCE Victoria was called to Wilsons
Promontory last Saturday afternoon after a man
slipped on rocks at Picnic Bay at about 2.15pm.
It was just one of hundreds of calls for assis-
tance, many of them heat related, as tempera-
tures soared into the high 30s and beyond.
Ambulance Victoria said they were called to
the Picnic Bay Carpark area where they found
that a swimmer in his 30s had slipped on rocks
after getting out of the water.
He fell about two metres and sustained head
and back injuries.
As a result of his remote location, the injured
man had to be winched to safety by air ambu-
lance helicopter and flown to Latrobe Regional
Hospital in a stable condition.
Paramedics were also called to 33 heat-related
incidents across Victoria on the day and they
have subsequently issued a warning, reminding
people to take care in the heat.
Another six calls were received for children
locked in a car. None of those required treat-
Several other people were injured on Saturday
in accidents in and around water including:
• A man aged in his 40s was swimming when
he hit his head on the end of the pool at Mul-
grave at 7pm. He was taken to Dandenong Hos-
pital in a stable condition.
• A woman in her 20s hurt her back when she
dived into a pool at Dandenong just before 5pm.
She was treated by paramedics and taken to
Dandenong Hospital in a stable condition.
• A man in his 30s is in critical condition after
being pulled from the water at Lederderg Gorge
just before one o’clock. He is believed to have be-
come unconscious after jumping into the water
feet first. The man was pulled from the water by
bystanders and treated by paramedics. He was
taken by road to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a
• A man in his 30s in has back injuries after
his personal water craft hit a sand bank in the
Fitzroy River at Tyrendarra at about midday. He
was flown by air ambulance helicopter to The
Alfred hospital in a stable condition.
• A woman in her 20s injured her neck when
she was dumped while swimming at Torquay
just before 11am. She was taken to Geelong
Hospital in a stable condition.
• Paramedics were called to separate incidents
of intoxicated women entering the water early
Saturday morning – one at St Kilda, the other
Ocean Grove. Neither required treatment.
Locally, ambulance officers have also been
kept busy, although thankfully not at road ac-
cidents. There have so far been three fatalities in
Victoria this year, two on Thursday, January 5
at Hazelwood North and Shepparton and one at
Scarsdale near Ballarat on Friday.
THE Bass Coast Shire Coun-
cil’s relaunch of the cinema at
the Wonthaggi Union Commu-
nity Arts Centre has proven
successful so far, with the cin-
ema quite busy during the day.
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela
Rothfield, said running a cin-
ema is a whole new business
“While, as expected, there
have been a few teething issues,
the overall feedback so far has
been brilliant, and the commu-
nity is extremely happy to see
the continuance of cinema in
Bass Coast,” she said.
The movie Sing has proven to
be a real hit with families, and
is screening until Wednesday,
January 11, along with ‘Where
to Find Them’, ‘The Founder’
and ‘Girl on a Train’.
Starting from Friday, January
13, Little Men, Mad Max Fury
Road and Office Christmas Par-
ty will be screening, along with
Sing and The Founder.

Wonthaggi mother Shelley
Rutjens dropped her children
off at the cinemas on Friday
and said she was glad to see
the Wonthaggi Cinema back in
“We need it open more often
for the locals. It’s too far to go
to Leongatha,” she said.
“I work full-time and so does
my husband, so to drop the
kids off at the movies is great.
“There are some good choic-
es and good family movies.
There are different times and
it works well in the holidays
and keeps the kids out of the
heat and gives them something
She said it was a great move
by the council.
“If they have more of it, it
keeps teenagers off the street,”
winched to safety
at Wilsons Prom
It’s a beautiful place to visit but climbing on rocks at Wilsons Promontory does present
inherent dangers as one beachgoer found out last Saturday.
