    The man who got stuck on an island in the Waimakariri River in Canterbury has been rescued

    The man who got stuck on an island in the Waimakariri River in Canterbury has been rescued


    Police were called to the island, which is near Bleakhouse Road in Darfield, just after 10 this morning.

    The man had been fishing and had to be airlifted off the island by Search and Rescue.

    Fishing is allowed under Alert Level 3 coronavirus restrictions but anglers are not allowed to use motorised boats and are asked to avoid risky situations.
