'Tears in eyes' as crash victim's body returns on barge
IT WAS a sombre scene at River Heads this afternoon as the body of a tourist killed in a crash returned from Fraser Island on the afternoon barge.
Onlookers watched as the funeral director's car, carrying the body, backed off the boat just after 3pm.
Barge passengers said they had tears in their eyes as they watched the Fraser Island ambulance transfer the body into the funeral car.
The man died this morning on Fraser Island after a 4WD rollover at 7.15am.
Returning holiday makers said operators were discreet while loading the car onto the barge.
