Woman, teens capsize canoe

A WOMAN and three teenagers clung to a tree for nearly an hour after their canoe capsized on the Mary River yesterday.

The four were canoeing on the Sunshine Coast hinterland when they reached a fork in the river, the current suddenly became rapid and their canoe capsized, the woman told media yesterday.

They held on to the tree until they were rescued by a firefighter and police officer about 45 minutes later.
