Number 14: Drowning
Included in Collection 3: The Last Ten Tales
Four-year-old Lucy is feared drowned in the dam, but while on the phone, the distraught caller collapses, resulting in a multi-service response. The police, firies, and the State Emergency Service beat the first ambulance to the remote rural location, but when Jono arrives he needs to work fast to avoid the arrival of his Station Officer, Darren Boardman. After all, the two of them get along like chilli powder and haemorrhoid cream.
