Man dies in NSW floods

Dave Noonan

ONE man is dead and thousands of people are stranded from their homes as the big wet continues to affect much of New South Wales and Victoria.

The body of a Victorian man was pulled from a swollen creek this morning after he and two friends became stuck as they tried to cross the flooded Araluen Creek near Braidwood last night.

All three were swept away when they got out of their four-wheel drive, but a 44-year-old Arulen man was rescued as he clung to a tree and a 37-year-old from Captains Flat was found downstream.

Both were suffering from hypothermia and other injuries.

Police divers joined the search for the missing man at first light this morning and his body was found shortly after 7am, 700 metres from where his four-wheel-drive became stuck.
