A NSW family say it’s gut-wrenching, coming to terms with the fact they might not be able to see their terminally ill dad in Brisbane due to the Queensland border closures.
Brisbane man Mark Keanes’ four young kids are trying to get into the state to say goodbye to their dad, who may not make it to Christmas.
The Sydney family has applied for an exemption, only to be told that just one of the kids will be allowed into the state.

Mark’s dad Bruce has spoken to The Today Show this morning, saying it’s just too hard to make that decision, especially today.
Queensland Health has released a statement this morning, saying they’re looking into the case, and sympathise with the family.
“We understand and sympathise that this is a very difficult time and there are challenges.
“Queensland’s current border restrictions are in place for one purpose – to save lives,” the statement, published by Nine, reads.
