Watch dramatic sea rescue of brothers off Queensland

STORY: Footage from LifeFlight Australia show a rescuer being winched down into the water near the two men who were clinging onto a floating drinks cooler.

The brothers, who were adrift for almost four hours after their boat capsized due to a rogue wave, were later individually airlifted into the helicopter. The men who are in their 20s were out fishing when the incident happened.

They suffered no injuries and had been transported to Bundaberg Hospital for further observation, according to LifeFlight Australia.
