Missing Tweed Fisher Found Alive After 11 Hours

A lucky rescue for an elderly man found standing on top of his upturned boat off the Tweed Coast.

A passing fishing vessel spotted the 74-year-old on the capsized boat around 6pm NSW time yesterday.

Police had been searching for him after the man's family reported him missing that morning.

Paramedics treated the fisher on shore for some minor cuts and dehydration.
