Fishermen found safe off Whitsundays

Two fishermen whose boat ran aground on rocks in the Whitsundays overnight in the midst of Cyclone Debbie have been found safe and well.

Police say the two men have been found and are on their way back to Shute Harbour on a police boat.

They became stranded near the western side of Whitsunday Island after Cyclone Debbie had swept through the region and the men were able to email family in NSW, who contacted police.
