An article on today’s Northern Star website suggests a recent surf rage incident at Lennox Head could lead to a charge of attempted murder for the accused.

According to the original report it is alleged that the accused, a 55-year-old surf-mat rider, repeatedly held a 54-year-old woman under water in the line-up at Lennox Head. Today’s Northern Star article indicates that the police will allege that the woman was forced to feign unconsciousness in order to prompt the man to let her go.
