7-year-old boy dies after crossing NSW Blue Mountain beach hole
His parents reported that he was missing on Sunday afternoon at Jellybean Pool at Glenbrook, about 60km west of Sydney.
The family members took the unconscious boy out of the water and started resuscitation attempts before the paramedics took him by the hand.
He was taken to Nepean Hospital in critical condition, but he was later pronounced dead.
NSW ambulance inspector Peter Van Prague said five crews were sent to the scene, plus a rescue helicopter and paramedics did everything they could to rescue the boy.
“It’s just sad,” he said.
“This type of work has a significant impact on all the emergency services involved, but no more than the family, our hearts go out of it.”
He said the incident was a tragic and timely reminder to take care near the water as the weather starts to warm up.
“In the blink of an eye, everything can change,” Van Pragg said.
“Nobody intends for these tragedies to happen, but that’s the thing about accidents – they happen in the second – but the impact can remain for a lifetime.”
