Buy a ticket in Tatts!

Man recovering after falling down mine shaft. A man from Rushworth, north-east of Bendigo has had a lucky escape from serious injury after falling down an old mine shaft. Andrew James was riding home from a New Year's Eve party when he had problems with his bike and decided to walk home. He fell into a 14-metre deep gold mine shaft and managed to raise the alarm using his mobile phone.
Creeping baby jesus - now there's mobile coverage for you! Why does it always crap out under tram lines in the inner 'burbs but not down a frigging mine shaft out in the sticks? Ah, the mysteries of Telstra. Really hope that no extreme DH riders get inspired by this!
