Gardners Falls Death – Police say the local boy was pulled unconscious from the water just before 3 PM by his friends.
Beerwah Senior Sergeant Tully Anderson said the friends “did a good job” performing CPR to help the teenager.
Ambulance, S-E-S and police officers helped carry the teenager to a nearby clearing so he could be flown to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, but he died overnight.
Police are interviewing witnesses and say it’s not clear whether it was an accident or a medical episode.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
