Two people have been injured in a boating incident off Greenwell Point on Sunday, May 17.
Shoalhaven Marine Rescue 30 were alerted of an incident around 5:30 on Sunday afternoon onboard a 28 foot cruiser in the Shoalhaven River, with reports of two people ill.
Two crew members Mike Boadle and Brian Earsman arrived at the boat on the southern side of the Comerong Island Ferry just after 6pm and started to provide oxygen to a woman.
The crew also discovered a man with burns on his left arm to his neck.
When they arrived at shore they were met by a NSW Ambulance, police officers and a rescue helicopter at Greenwell Point.
The man was transferred to a Sydney burns unit and the woman taken to Shoalhaven District Hospital.
The man is understood to have sustained serious burns when he was overcome and fell on to the engine's hot manifold.
