It comes not even 12 hours after paramedics were called to Surfers Paradise beach, after a young boy was also pulled from the surf.
It’s understood the pre-teen was swimming just in front of Cavill Avenue as well, before coming into trouble at 10.00pm.
Paramedics arrived once the boy was out of the water.
He was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment, where he’s believed to be in a stable condition.
