THREE teenagers have had to be rescued by firefighters after becoming stuck in storwater drains on the Gold Coast.

The trio found themselves stuck in the drain on Moorea Court at Pacific Pines around 3pm on Tuesday.

Crews managed to open the grate and free the kids within half an hour.


The event has sparked new warnings to stay out of drains due to the danger that can come along with it.

It’s understood it’s not the first time the boys had played in the drain but they had become lost.
