Two men drown and child in hospital in Queensland beach tragedy | Queensland

Two men have drowned and a boy has been taken to hospital after getting into trouble in the surf on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

The men in their mid-30s were pulled from the water at Teewah Beach in Noosa North Shore about 2.30pm on Saturday but could not be revived.

The nine-year-old boy was taken to Sunshine Coast University hospital in a stable condition.

Surf Life Saving Queensland said the drownings were among a concerning number of serious incidents on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.

Regional operations manager Aaron Purchase said: “Today’s events are a tragic reminder to only ever swim between the red and yellow flags.

“If you must swim at remote location, stay close to the beach and remain waist-deep,” he said.
